This news article really got me thinking. My 5 year old doesn't yet know to call 000 in emergencies. He can be a little immature at times, so I would be worried that he would prank call, not realising the seriousness of doing so.
He spends a lot of time at his grandma's house, who has heart conditions and diabetes, she lives alone. A few times her sugar levels have dropped so fast and so low that her body shuts down, and she is unable to communicate or get to the phone to call for assistance, and she has gotten close to being comatose. DS has not been present yet during these hypo's, but it does concern me that one day it might happen with him there, or that some other medical emergency will arise.
For those who have taught their children to call 000 in emergencies, how have you instilled it in your child to call in emergencies only?
