Tomorrow is the big day for our little ones. Streets and schools are already full of kids in costume, many in full character. As we prepare to celebrate a day kids wait for all year, these words by blogger and mom Jennifer Cluff are a beautiful reminder to all of us. She writes:
“A lot of little people will be visiting your home. Be accepting. The child who is grabbing more than one piece of candy may be struggling with his fine motor skills. The child who takes forever to pick out one piece of candy may have motor planning issues. The child who does not say ‘trick or treat’ or ‘thank you’ may be non-verbal. The child who looks disappointed when they see your bowl, might have an allergy. The child who isn’t wearing a costume at all might have a sensory issue or autism. Be nice. Be patient. It’s everyone’s Halloween.”
Be safe, be silly and have fun this Halloween!
