|Tips#1: Read Together Every Day|
|Read to your child every day. Make this a warm and loving time when the two of you can cuddle close together. Bedtime is an especially great time for reading together.|
|Tips#2: Give Everything A Name|
|You can build comprehension skills early, even with the littlest child. Play games that involve naming or pointing to objects. Say things like, "Where's your nose?" and then, "Where's Mommy's nose?" Or touch your child's nose and say, "What's this?"|
Chris was in the middle of his late night shift when he felt a sudden surge of pain in his chest. Chris was an operator on a remote oil rig in the North Sea. The rig had about 200 employees and the only way out of it was either by the small emergency boat or an emergency helicopter from the nearby land. Chris was rendered immobile by the shock and it was a while before he could summon someone for help. It took a few phone calls, ringing of the general alarm, a midnight panic and an air ambulance to take Chris to the hospital and save his life.
The lucky operator from the rig is now recuperating in his house. He goes to the beach for a walk, enjoys the late evening breeze, drinks old French wine, plays with his grandson and reads Thomas Hardy's novels every night before going to bed. But, not everyone is as lucky as him.
Every day hundreds of individuals lose their lives and various others are injured or permanently disabled while on duty. A lot of these injuries are avoidable and at least their impact can be reduced if the co-workers have attended first aid at work courses. While the probability of such incidents can be drastically reduced with Social Care Training courses by providing specific modules to target workers, the handling of such situations can only be taught with first aid at work courses.
|Tips#3: Say How Much You Enjoy Reading Together|
|Tell your child how much you enjoy reading with him or her. Look forward to this time you spend together. Talk about "story time" as the favorite part of your day.|
|Tips#4: Be Interactive|
|Engage your child so he or she will actively listen to a story. Discuss what's happening, point out things on the page, and answer your child's questions. Ask questions of your own and listen to your child's responses.|
With the changing landscape, increasing stress levels and globalisation of workplaces, the need for specialised courses that aim to provide basic knowledge not just about first aid but hygiene, employee inclusion, violence management, risk assessment etc. is continuously on the rise. Social care training courses are aimed to provide these and various other services.
There is another aspect of care that is forgotten quite often, and this is the post trauma care, that must be administered in the workplaces. Quite often, the employee feels left out after re-joining and the onus to make him feel at home falls in the hands of the other employees. The care required depends on the intensity of the trauma suffered and is often in accordance with doctors recommendations. Social care training courses also aim to provide these courses that could help individuals like Chris overcome their trauma and work normally.
First aid at work can save a man's life but he is provided with a new life by a concerted effort of everyone around and such efforts are fostered by social care courses.
|Tips#5: Read It Again And Again And Again|
|Your child will probably want to hear a favorite story over and over. Go ahead and read the same book for the 100th time! Research suggests that repeated readings help children develop language skills.|
|Tips#6: Talk About Writing, Too|
|Draw your child's attention to the way writing works. When looking at a book together, point out how we read from left to right and how words are separated by spaces.|
