Every person should learn a little first aid

I was a British Red Cross volunteer for many years going and attending functions on duty also taking disadvantaged children on camp holidays.
First important rule never move the casualties .
Think first act second. You never know when the minute arises.
Go on learn now, that choking baby needs you.

A good app with inappropriate rating

This is an excellent app for those with some first aid knowledge but not familiar with children's differing needs. I was shocked when I changed the app settings on my iPad to 12+ rating in order that my grandchildren could use it. This app disappeared. Clearly it is not thought appropriate that children learn first aid. I reverted to previous settings and had to re-install the app.

Useful knowledge

This makes me feel more confident in my ability to correctly tackle emergency situations with my toddler.

Having it handy to review when you have a few spare minutes is a much better way to spend the time than messing around on social media!
