    Host: Should children go trick-or-treating alone?

    Nancy McBride: Children should never go trick-or-treating alone. This is a time of year when child safety is really important; it is everyday of the year. But this is a time when kids are out and about usually after dark, they are taking candy from people they may not know very well and it is important that you as the parent or guardian or trusted adult supervise your younger kids and for older kids that they stay in groups and they know when they need to be home and they know which neighborhoods they can visit.
