Tampa, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/29/2013 -- Every kid wants to enjoy the fun of trick-or-treating with friends on Halloween night. Many parents remember the joy of running through the neighborhood in the dark collecting ungodly amounts of candy. To help parents take family safety measures in a smartphone connected world this Halloween, the team at MamaBear Family Safety App compiled a list of safety tips they shared on the MamaBear blog.
Parenting is a bit different today. Few parents are comfortable sending their kids off into the the dark without adult supervision. And while many neighborhoods around the country have designated trick-or-treating events designed to keep children and families safe, sometimes that is not enough to reassure parents worried about sending kids off to trick-or-treat.
The safety measures MamaBear App recommends include tracking children's locations on Halloween night, monitoring social media activity, choosing the right costume, traveling in groups among others.
"Halloween is such a fun time for kids and may be a night of worry for parents," said MamaBear president Robyn Spoto, a bona fide MamaBear with two curious, active boys of her own. "We wanted to give parents some tips that will help them prepare for a safe, fun trick-or-treating experience."
