Host: What else can children do to enjoy Halloween without going door to door? Nancy McBride: If a parent or guardian is a little bit concerned about kids going door to door for treats, check out your community; see what is going on as far as the organized event, whether it is at a mall or some sort of a community centre. Many times, they will organize an event where kids can come, have a good time, do different things besides just getting candy and the parent or guardian can supervise a little bit better because they are in an enclosed environment or you as the parent or guardian can setup a party yourself and invite people in your neighborhood to participate or be part of that or maybe do a group trick-or-treating setting right in the neighborhood. So, it is very close by and it is very supervised. So, there are a number of things you can do, so your kids still have fun, but they give you a lot of bit better control over the environment and where your kids are going.
