As children go “Trick or Treating” from house to house this Halloween, parents may have some worries when it comes to safety and sugar overload.

Costume: Make sure children wear bright colored, flame-resistant costumes and candy bags with reflective tape on them. The costumes should not be so long that children can trip over them and fall.

Unfortunately, children are hardly ever aware of how good a full night’s sleep can feel – most of them want to stay up for as long as they can. The situation is even harder to manage in teenagers, who no longer want to be constrained by fixed bedtimes and night-time curfews. However, the importance of sleep cannot be overstated. If you’re the parent or caretaker of a child or teenager, it is extremely important to ensure that they understand the need ...
