Trick-or-Treating Safety Tips this Halloween

This week's Parent Talk topic.

Each week, our council of experts and smart parents take your questions, give advice and share solutions in this parenting column. This feature will also be the place to drop in for a talk about the latest parenting hot topic.

So grab a cup of coffee and settle in as we start the conversation today with a topic and question:

Halloween is a few days away, and that means trick-or-treating time for kids. How will you make sure they stay safe this Halloween? At what age do you let them go on their own, if at all? For that matter, how old is too old to go out trick-or-treating?

Please comment in the box below, and check Norton Patch every Wednesday at 1 p.m. for this segment.

I just uploaded two releases to this story sent out by Norton Fire Department on Halloween safety tips. Do you know where the best (and safest) trick-or-treating places are? If so, please share!

I love Halloween! We'll take my kids trick or treating around 5pm - I like to go out while it's still light out. We bring glow sticks and flashlights for when it gets dark. Since we live on a busy street we'll head over to a neighborhood with side streets and sidewalks. I think it's okay to trick or treat until 10th grade - as long as they are in costume! Hey, I'd still like to trick or treat if I could get away with it! :) Happy Halloween!
