So, hubby works in the medical field and I am a childcare provider. He is off tomorrow BUT has to go update his CPR and I am due in June for my new card as well. Required every 2 years for my field. That brought to mind this week's poll question!
My boys are now 16 and 17 and I am thinking of having them go with me during my class to learn CPR! It is for newbies and renewals. Same class, very basic. Enough to sustain until emergency gets there. Nowhere near what hubby's class will entail but again, his is for medical field.
I feel it is a viable thing to know in general but they also do vacations twice a year with grandparents and great-grandmas, most of who are early to mid-70's up to 99 yrs old. I clearly remember having to take it in 7th grade but because they are homeschooled, they did not have to do that....though I don't even know if public school does that any more..... and now that I am writing this....I am considering trying to see if I can find an instructor to do it for our homeschool group! Would be a good thing for all the kids to know!
It is just a good thing to know and have a basis for life!
So, do you and/or your kids know CPR? Have you taken a class? Are you planning on it now?
If you are, check your local Red Cross for classes or your community center! Basic public classes run about $30-40 per person.
