Benefits of a Red Cross Babysitting Course
Why take a whole day to learn the skills of babysitting? Unless your child happens to be an older sibling who actively cares your younger children, chances are they knows very little about the critical aspects of caring for youngsters. And while some of those skills could be described as “common sense,” many actually have to be taught. For example, when is it appropriate to call a parent versus 911? What should they do if a child decides not to listen? What questions should they be sure to ask parents before they leave?
After taking the class, your child will be better prepared to answer these questions and to manage the complicated experience of standing in for parents. Perhaps just as important, they’ll be able to include that they’ve taken a Red Cross babysitting course when they promote their babysitting services, something that really appeals to parents because it is one of the most recognized and respected names in first aid and safety.
