It will help them in case of an emergency situation and also teach them about how important it is to learn how to take care of themselves.
Sure, the idea of administering first aid can be pretty scary, but keep in mind that your little one is going to most likely get into plenty of scrapes and “boo-boos,” so this is why you need to learn. Here are some additional reasons why every parent needs to learn about first aid.

Since they’re bound to get into plenty of accidents, you’ll be able to easily help them out and keep them safe just by learning this skill. Plus, there are plenty of things to keep in your first aid bag, but bandages seem to be the biggest one for children.
It’s important for everyone
No matter what stage you are in parenthood, you’re going to need to learn first aid; this is something that is going to help your little one out, but who knows, maybe you’ll be able to save the life of a complete stranger.
