Whether you love it or loathe it, there’s no doubting that trick or treating has become a much bigger deal in the UK than it was a decade or so ago.
Next Wednesday evening there will be plenty of groups of dressed-up children knocking on doors asking for sweets.
Many children are likely to be accompanied by an adult, but what if this year you decide your children are old enough to experience the evening without adult supervision?
Well, this weekend could be the perfect time to have that first Clever Never Goes conversation! Remember the rule “If someone you’re not expecting to, or don’t know, asks you to go somewhere with them, just remember Clever Never Goes!”
That means going into a car and going somewhere outside. But it also means going into someone’s house.
Check out our free information for parents and activities for children to make sure your child understands the Clever Never Goes rule.
