Tips for staying safe when you’re guising

If you’re taking the kids out guising, here are some tips for staying safe. Parents often wonder at what age it’s safe to let their kids go out on their own, and of course there’s no set answer to that, it’s up to you and how mature your child is and how well you know your neighbours.
