try as much as possible to be able to prevent them. From keeping a close watch to keeping away harmful
substances from their hands – every step is vital and important. Most emergencies are a series of steps
and breaking the chain helps avert possible danger.
When emergencies do occur, parents need to be prepared to handle them effectively. It involves not panicking, knowing what kind of first-aid to administer and having the wherewithal to call for an ambulance or driving the child to the hospital. First-aid is not an blanket procedure, and parents ought to understand how to administer it for different emergencies.
