Education is the lifeblood of tomorrow’s development and as kids this phase of knowledge gathering, information exchange is vital in making the right decisions in life. And to add to this, every school going kid must most necessarily and mandatorily learn the most important art of first aid.
School aged children in India form the majority of the population of India and they also represent the next generation of people who can lead the world to the next century and it becomes necessary for them to learn first aid for the following reasons.
Fosters the spirit of empathy
Sharing is caring, once thought to young kids stays as a value to them in their entire life. So does learning first aid. The idea of saving someone/ helping someone in need of help comes from the spirit of empathy. This emotion is a wonderful emotion that when fostered in children leads to a better society. An empathetic person can help the world find love and peace. First aid awareness in kids can make them good samaritans for life.
Keeps them prepared for emergencies and makes them more self-reliant
First aid training or awareness is a wonderful tool that makes children be prepared for emergencies that may strike them or the people around them. Be in the case of bleeding, first aid in case of dog bites, snake bites. Kids love to play in the school, falling and getting injured is common, but in case there are serious issues then as students they know what to do in preventing further mishaps, stabilise the person and call for help. In case of minor injuries that are inflicted on them, they are enabled with information and hence do not panic, it helps them become more self-reliant and confident.
Helps them become leaders
The first aid training makes these kids take up helping others with a renewed vigour and this practice makes them natural leaders that can take charge of the situation and give the needy the necessary support in times of need.
Save lives of others
Be it playing outside, walking on the road, going on treks and trips, these first aid steps are needed by the school going students now since they are exposed to a lot of stimuli that can trigger an emergency situation for them or for others as well. It pays to be prepare them and in the process save lives of others. Is there a need for any better reason than that?
