More than 6 million people are without power in the wake of Hurricane Sandy.

However, National Association of Social Workers member Catherine Pearlman said the storm need not take the treat out of Halloween.

Pearlman, who is assistant professor of social work at the College of New Rochelle, offered parents tips on how to help their children ride out the storm and its aftermath. Her comments appeared in this article  on the Wall Street Journal‘s The Juggle blog.

For instance, if the power is still out in your neighborhood Pearlman, LMSW, DSW, said parents and children can still dress up and decorate. But instead of going from door-to-door searching for treats, children can find candy hidden around the house.

“This is such an opportunity to be together,” Pearlman said.
