Show Notes

The story of one mother whose first aid knowledge saved her son’s life, from an excellent blog post at Always Josefa (www.alwaysjosefa.com).

First aid can be studied anytime, anywhere and should be an essential part of preparation for parenthood. Families, including children, can study first aid together and it is important to regularly update your skills because procedures and recommendations change as new evidence is discovered.


All Parents Worry

The antidote to worry is being prepared. Would you know what to do if your child choked, fell into a pool, was bitten by a snake, broke their arm or was cut by something sharp?


Where do you get your knowledge from?

Don’t rely on TV, word of mouth or any other resource for up to date, accurate first aid information. The only people you should trust are qualified, experienced professionals. So go to the source and get training from a reputable organisation. Look for a surf lifesaving club, St John Ambulance or the Red Cross.

In the next episode of Parents in the Know we will look at the troubled subject of shared care amongst separated families. To Share Care or Not to Share, next time on Parents in the Know.

Finally I’d like to update you on my work in progress: My book, Outstanding Long Distance Parenting is due out this year and features a discussion on first aid training – one of a great many things you can do as a family even when you’re not all together.Please subscribe to our newsletter right here to receive free great resources to help you in your parenting journey.  So sign up today! Thanks for listening.
