I did a first aid course many years ago, and it is the one thing you hope you never have to use. But what if you find yourself in a situation where you need to step in and quick thinking use your first aid skills.
Would you know what to do? Would what you learnt in a class come flooding back?
As parents, it is our job to make sure we protect and care for our children in any way we are needed. First aid is one of those things. We can all clean up a cut or graze and add a plaster with a kiss to make it better. We help keep temperatures down, but what about something more serious. If they get something stuck and are choking, would we know what to do then.
What if a friend or a colleague suddenly collapsed would you know how to put them into the recovery position, or try to get them breathing again.
