5 Tips for a Safe Halloween

Halloween TreatsIf your child is old enough to go Trick or Treating on their own, they’re probably old enough to own their own phones.  This is where I definitely think having one is a good thing. This Halloween and any Halloween, ensure your kids have a safe and fun Halloween with these simple tips.

  1. 1969326_10152328377925159_1529000889_nMake sure your child’s phone is fully charged. Seems obvious and yet not always the case!
  2. Pre-program ICE (In Case of Emergency) numbers into your child’s phone and make sure they know how to call it.
  3. Set alarms to give them reminders to check in and even to alert them when they should be enroute home.
  4. Download a free Flashlight app. Ever so useful in any situation.
  5. Activate that ever amazing Verizon Wireless Family Locator feature on your plan.  For $9.99 your entire family can locate one another any time, any where. Super easy to use, the program will even email you or text you arrival and departure information for locations or time parameters.
