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!

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.

Parental reassurance

I wish I'd have had this app when my children were young. Would have found it very reassuring, especial with then tests for each module.
