I was brought to tears abruptly this morning. I unusually caught a little of Daybreak, and on the show was a brave 5 year old with her mum.
She had rung 999 when her Mum had had an Epileptic fit, and was unconscious.
The girl, who is extremely shy, spoke to the operator so bravely. The operator to is to be hugely applauded too. She kept her calm and talking whilst the police officer arrived.
This got me thinking about the importance of talking to our children, and what to do in an emergency.
This is such an essential thing to instil in our children. So perhaps if this is something that you have not done recently or ever. We should all spend a few moments speaking to our child about what to do.
I have found a fantastic article on Net Mums HERE that is really worth a read, and there are lots of related articles on fire safety etc.
Thank you for reading
