Babysitter/first aid courses offered
According to the American Red Cross, about half (51 percent) of Americans rely on unpaid babysitters, and nearly a quarter (24 percent) pay between $6 and $10 an hour for someone to watch their children. Ten percent pay between $11 and $15 an hour; while 4 percent pay between $16 and $20 an hour, making babysitting a potentially lucrative option for qualified teenagers. A majority of parents believe sitters should be paid more if they are trained to help a child who is choking, recognize potential emergency situations, identify items that could be hazardous to small children, and give first aid for minor cuts and bruises. More than three in four (77 percent) of parents with children younger than 17 feel teenagers should receive some training before they begin babysitting.
The Red Cross babysitting, CPR and first aid courses teach teens how to care for young children and handle emergency situations. The American Red Cross babysitting certification course gives youth the knowledge and confidence to care for infants and school-aged children. Adults can also boost their babysitting skills by enrolling in CPR and first aid courses.
Upcoming Red Cross babysitting courses, dates/times and locations include: Salem: June 20 and Aug. 8, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Kent State University, 2491 state Route 45.; and East Liverpool: July 14, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., Kent State University, 400 E. Fourth St.
