Walnut Creek, CA (PRWEB) October 5, 2007
KeepingKidsSafeToday.com's annual Halloween Safety campaign kicks off for 2007 today. Not only does the campaign focus on Trick-or-Treat safety, it also focuses on heightening parent awareness of the real dangers most kids face for Halloween.
KeepingKidsSafeToday.Com's Halloween Safety campaign has a unique approach to Halloween Safety focused around prevention of injuries, the biggest problem for kids October 31st. They don't say watch how much candy your child eats, walk with them around the neighborhoods or carry a flashlight. These are things everyone knows and that's fine by Preston Jones and Joyce Jackson, President and Vice President of KeepingKidsSafeToday.com, because "those are Halloween tips around for decades and we all know them." They are standards we all grew up with. "Today's parents need to be a little more savvy on Halloween," says Jones. "Parents need to know their child has a greater risk of falling and heading to the Emergency Room on Halloween than any other kind of risk," adds Jackson.
Like their highly successful Keeping Kids Safe Program (now in its fifth year), KeepingKidsSafeToday.com's campaign provides concrete material, the How To's of Halloween safety for today's busy parents. Their free "Halloween Safety Tips" is full of practical and effective information that anyone with children needs for Halloween safety, such as how to give your child "soft" props with their costume, what is the best safety light for your child to carry and what type of candy container is the safest for your child to use when Trick-or-Treating. In addition to the basic Halloween "How To's," Tips also offer many "insider tips" that Jones and Jackson have gleaned from decades of working with kids, psychology training and martial arts backgrounds.
So far, parent response to "Halloween Safety Tips" has been huge and very positive. For example, says Joyce, "we are getting close to thirty or forty downloads a day for the Tips, which is great."
While most headlines and Halloween tips evoke images of poisoned candy and fruit laced with razor blades, "Halloween Safety Tips" tells you how to deal with the real dangers to your child on Halloween, namely falling down by tripping unexpectedly in the dark and injuring their stomach, head or breaking teeth and/or being hit by a car in the street.
