Injuries and accidents happen so VERY quickly. Adults know a lot about safety and preventing injuries. Adults have had decades and decades to accumulate experiences, warnings, education and more. Even so, ADULTS get hurt all too often! Just think of little kids – they have little or no idea of what can hurt them. They could fall from that? They could get burned on that? That is very sharp? That could fall on you? (Like a TV tip-over!) They just don’t know.
Thus, an injury or accident can occur. Teaching First Aid and CPR and youth Babysitting CPR (age 11+) for these 15 years, I certainly am passionate about training for safety. I am also the recipient of a tsunami of stories, over these years. Students, young or old, will share in class family experiences, their own accident details, or something that happened to their friend…
Little kids climbing up on furniture to get to something they want can cause the furniture – and the TV on top of it – to fall over onto them. Beyond serious injury, the TV tip-over can cause death.
