Children have an unnerving knack of taking their parents and carers by surprise. Emma’s book places safety in the context of child development, empowering parents to anticipate risk and avoid serious accidents in childhood. She shows how prompt first aid can help minimise the impact of an accident, sharing her practical knowledge and skills. And she explains how to assess a situation, so we have the confidence to apply first aid skills in an emergency.

Being a parent is scary and we have a natural tendency to over-protect our children. Rather than wrapping the children in cotton wool, arm yourself with Emma’s great book, take sensible precautions and then let your children enjoy their childhood. Being armed with the knowledge and skills to deal with accidents is much more practical than trying to foresee and prevent every mishap.

'Children are curious and it’s only natural that they will have minor accidents as they explore. ‘Burns, Falls and Emergency Calls’ is a super informative, but easy to read book, for families, parents, grandparents, childminders and carers, to help everyone become aware of potential risks. It teaches the skills needed to help in an emergency without overwhelming the reader, and of course, that could ultimately save lives. This great book empowers and gives confidence to everyone who reads it and I highly recommend that you go out and grab yourself a copy and keep it handy.’

Parents, carers and anyone working with children and young people will appreciate the way that Emma has focused on child development accidents and injuries, as well as outlining the norms of developmental expectations for different age groups. This unique and informative book is a must.
