Empowering youth

Written by Healthy Living

Florida Hospital Waterman will host its Safe Sitter classes from 8am-4pm July 27 and Aug. 3 according to their website. This course is designed to help students between ages 11 and 13 gain the confidence and ability to take care of themselves and young children without adult supervision. Six certified instructors will lead the one-day programs, and students will learn how to administer first aid, choking child rescue, and CPR, and how to manage their own babysitting business.

“The skills learned in this program are a true asset to our community’s youth,” says Mary Narmore, MSN-Ed, CMSRN, manager of education, Florida Hospital Waterman. “After participating in Safe Sitter, students feel more confident caring for younger children, and parents can rest at ease knowing their teens are prepared to handle emergencies.”
