If this is your First Halloween without your Child..
You may want to change your usual routine. You may want to ask someone else to give out
candy, or you may leave your lights off. Maybe you'll decide you can handle the Trick-or Treat part,
but won't buy your child"s favorite candy to give. lf you have other children, perhaps you could go to
a party instead of staying home (or stay home if the carnival is what you did previously).
Sometimes, by simply thinking it out in advance, we can lessen the impact of an event.
