Does Your Babysitter Have The Proper Training?

By Fox 40 News.
Babysitting is a popular first job for many teenagers but a good baby sitter has to know the tips and tricks to child care

The American Red Cross of the Southern Tier provided a training class to do just that on Saturday.

The day long training sessions taught babysitters,and future babysitters, a variety of skills from diapering and feeding to identifying safety hazards and care for common injuries.

"Safety, answering the door, answering the telephone, and then it goes on to a lot of things we do; CPR, how to take car of someone who's choking, how to help someone who is bleeding. We go over all this stuff in a very educational, but very fun manner," says American Red Cross Instructor Lance Lee.

Students in the class were between the ages of 11 and 15.
