Parenting Pointers: A Nanny’s Guide to a Happy Halloween

Halloween is a chance for kids to play dress-up, be out after dark, and of course indulge in a plethora of candy. For parents however, it might be a bit more hectic than exciting. To keep things as stress-free as possible, Florence Ann RomanoThe Windy City Nanny™ shares some great reminders for parents this Halloween.
5 Halloween Tips for Parents: 
1) Halloween is a chance for children and families to socialize. Get a group together from your kid’s school to meet their friends and their parents! 
2) Allergies! If your child has an allergy it's imperative that they do not eat the candy without you. And make sure the group they're with knows what to do in an emergency. 
3) Don't let your kids dress sexy if you can help it! Remind your girls that less isn’t necessarily more. 
4) Manners! Please, thank you, kindness, etc. And remember, children with special needs participate in Halloween too, and need extra TLC.  
5) Young children should always have an adult present during trick-or-treating. If your older children will be going alone, ensure you know the route they will be taking and agree on a specific time to be home.
