School-Age Girl Holding Toddler
Thousands of 11- to 13-year-olds baby-sit on a regular basis. But how many of them are properly prepared for the responsibility they accept when they take a baby-sitting job? Could they help a choking child? Are they able to handle minor injuries and first aid correctly. A pediatrician, Dr. Patricia Keener, founded this national program in 1980.
