Halloween Safety Tips
With Halloween approaching, it can be a stressful time for parents to think about their teen or tween being out and about. And even though the trick-or-treating years might be long gone, there’s still a good chance that your child is going to be out hanging with their friends or finding some other fun activities to do during the night.
The good news is that parents can find a bit of comfort and relief knowing that Life360 has their backs.
Not only is this app a great way that parents can worry a bit less but it also gives teens the ability to have a safe and fun Halloween that is certain to be full of treats (and no tricks!).
With all the excitement of Halloween, these simple safety tips can be a lifesaver! Instead of giving in to the chaos, try these ideas instead.
Safety Zone for Hanging with friends
Wondering if your tweens and teens are old enough to spend hours without you on Halloween night? All you need to do is set up a Place in the Life360 app in the neighborhood they want to hangout in.
This allows you to set a geo-fence around the area your child should stay within and if they leave, you get a notification.
This not only gives them a bit of freedom without having to check in every 10 minutes but it also helps you relax knowing that they’re where they are supposed to be as well.
Remind your teens to charge their cell phones
There’s nothing worse than a low battery on a phone but when that phone belongs to your teen, that could mean losing all communication with them while they’re away from home.
Life360 also allows you to see who needs to charge their phone and how much battery truly remains.
That way you’re not taking a chance on not hearing from your teen just because of a low battery situation.
Give your teen peace of mind when they’re out on the road
