Babysitting Course Links Topics

Topics:

In Health, we learn about safety in general and internet safety, including dealing with chats, Facebook, email, and many other parts of the internet. We learn to view ourselves from God's perspective and not the world's. We are created in God's image (Gen. 1:26-27). We also learn to take care of our bodies (wellness, fitness, our skin, hair, nails, ears, eyes, etc.) because we are a temple of the Holy Spirit (1 Cor. 6:19-20). We also learn about manners and how to treat others.

Babysitting Course:

We do the American Red Cross Babysitter's Training this year. This course starts in January and often will run through the rest of the year. At the end of this course, if your child passes the tests and completes the skills successfully, they will be certified through the American Red Cross.

Even if your child does not baby-sit, there are very useful skills in this course. Topics covered include the responsibilities of babysitting, how to feed, care for, and play with children, accident prevention, and how to handle emergencies and illness.
