A Parent's Guide to First Aid and How to Teach First Aid to Children
Emergencies happen, but it isn't always the child who needs emergency care. If a parent is injured, it may be the child who must administer care and contact the authorities or emergency medical services. For this reason, children should be taught basic first aid so that they know how to react in an emergency situation. These skills can also help them if they are in a situation where an adult is not readily available but immediate action is required in order to help a friend or other family member. The ACLS Online Training Center provides some free first aid resources to help families learn these essential skills. Click here to learn more
