1. Bumps to the head
As toddlers begin to approach school age, they move into an ‘egocentric’ phase where their curiosity peaks. Bumps to the head are one of the common injuries for children this age.
Burns are one of the commonest injuries to young children. Thankfully, burns are largely preventable and you can minimise the damage by responding quickly.
As a parent, you should encourage your child to eat with you at the table rather than running around. It’s also essential to know what to do if your child does start to choke.
CPR, otherwise known as cardiopulmonary resuscitation, is a life-saving exercise that you can teach yourself and your children in case of an emergency.
