If you parents have small children who will be celebrating Halloween dressing up in cute costumes, check out the Google Maps app, if you haven’t already, and you can search your local malls in that app and also libraries near you.
Why I tell you to do that is because you can often find places that celebrate Halloween in safe environments and it’s fun for the kids because they get to see the other kids, play, goof off and do the wonderful things kids do, and share their costumes and show them off.
You the parent can have the peace of mind.
You won’t have to worry that your kids are getting razor blades in the popcorn balls or other tainted candy and other garbage that some evil minded people do to innocent children each year.
I know because I always hear about it on the news the next day and just wish more people would think of more innovative, unique, healthful or even fun things to give other than candy like crayons or raisins, trail mix, or any other thing you might think of.
As intelligent as kids are becoming these days and sophisticated with smartphones put in their hands at early ages.
I think the whole candy giving thing will gradually be replaced with ever more healthy options in the future.
Until that time comes, at least you can have the best of both worlds: Your kids can still have a lot of fun and yet you, as a responsible loving parent will also have peace of mind.
