Children's Day Special: Lifesaving Skills to Teach Children

Today is the 1st of June, which, in case you did not know, is recognized internationally as Children’s Day. To celebrate International Children’s Day I thought it a good idea to focus on children-related bits and pieces. So today, the 1st of June, all the news here on FindMySoft.com will be children-related.

And I get things started with this: apart from teaching your children to use computers and software and other techie bits, you should take the time to teach them some life-saving skills as well. It’s not like children don’t know how to use computers. A study released by AVG Technologies (see here), showed that children know more about computers, computers games, and smartphone apps than about riding a bike, tying their shoelaces, and swimming.

Getting back to the topic at hand, here are few lifesaving skills you can teach your child. First up, teach your children to call 911 (or whatever the emergency number is in your country) if there is an emergency. Next up, get your children to learn CPR. This is something that can come in very handy, as Tristan Saghin proved.

CNN
reported earlier this month that 9-year-old Tristan Saghin saved his little sister’s life by pulling her out of the swimming pool she fell in and by performing CPR on her. His sister, 2-year-old Brooke lived only because his parents had taught him to perform CPR.

New York pediatrician Dr. David Markenson says children can be taught to do a lot of things in case of an emergency. They can be taught to treat cuts and scrapes (even a 4-year-old can learn to do this), they can be taught to help a person who’s choking (an 8-year-old can do this), and they can even be taught to use automated external defibrillators when trained. 11-year-olds can be taught to tend to bee stings, burns or allergic reactions. 15-year-olds can become certified swimming lifeguards.
