Year-round Festival Series 39 – Halloween – Don’t let it get too scary!

The last Sunday of October is the end of Daylight Saving Time in Western Europe. Halloween is celebrated in many countries during the change of autumn and winter. How to celebrate Halloween with children is something for adults to think about. Educational Halloween children’s books can not only satisfy children’s excitement for exciting things, but also cultivate children’s reading habit through storybooks.

Wonderful stories can make children develop the habit of reading without them realising it. It is a challenge to choose thrilling Halloween storybooks that are educational and age-appropriate for children.


As a reminder, parents need to read through the Halloween storybooks and discuss the meaning with their children so that they will not be indoctrinated with wrong concepts at a young age, such as “trick or treating is right”, challenging the authority of adults, and other rebellious concepts. It is also incorrect to train children to be brave just for the sake of being scared.

Sooner or later, children will be exposed to all that Halloween has to offer, so planting the seeds of correctness in their minds at an early age will help them to make their own choices about what is right in their teenage years.

Just the right amount of resilience to deal with just the right amount of fear.

Daniel Goleman, author of the popular psychological book Emotional Intelligence, which has been on the New York Times bestseller list for more than a year and has sold more than 5 million copies worldwide, has also written another book, Social Intelligence, which talks about the pressures children face when dealing with fear and how to help them deal with and digest fear. This book talks about the pressures children face when dealing with fear, and how to help children deal with and digest fear.

Quoting another psychologist, Richard Davidson, he writes, “We can learn to be resilient by being exposed to a threat or stress at a level that allows us to manage it. If we are exposed to too little stress, nothing will be learned; too much and [a child’s] brain and body stay stuck in the fear-aroused mode… then what’s being [learned] is not resilience, but the failure to recover.”


There are a number of resources online that teach parents what to expect before Halloween arrives.
The following is a brief summary:

  1. Help children to understand that underneath the spooky costumes are normal children and adults.
  2. Reflective or fluorescent materials can be attached to the children’s costumes so that they can be seen clearly during nighttime activities.
  3. Make a deal on the amount of candy the kids can eat on Halloween.
  4. Adults can accompany children to complete Halloween activities, or older children can take care of younger ones.
  5. Teach children to be safe in traffic and to walk on the pavements with their friends, never alone.
  6. Set a bedtime for your child on Halloween. Go to bed early to give your child time to calm down and sleep.
