Useful tips specially the ones about dressing your child safely. Sometimes parents get carried away with far too fancy costumes that are too long, too thin or uncomfortable for the child.

I'm a kid (12 years old) and I'm going to be a ninja. I most certainly WILL NOT be using white, reflectors, or glow-sticks. Ninja SHOULD be invisible. I don't need cars to look out for me: I will look out for them! I will have a flashlight, but I will only turn in on when i need it. I will not be wasting it's batteries all live long night.
