Halloween can be a scary time for some children. Attractions, decorations, costumes, haunted houses, parks and even trick or treating can stir up intense fear. When you have a terrified child on your hands, it can be difficult for them and your entire family to enjoy the popular holiday. Consider taking these few steps, and perhaps you can minimize their concerns before October 31 arrives.
