Put Just Enough "Boo" in Halloween

Children typically love the idea of a spooky Halloween, but 6- and 7-year-olds are still young enough to be scared by frightening images. Ask your child’s school about its policy on scary Halloween costumes and request that scary masks and weapons be prohibited if they aren’t already. Don’t worry about being too protective. It’s important that your young child enjoys the holiday, too!
