Just wondering what age everyone taught their children about emergencies and how to pohone 999? I worry that they might call out of curiosity but then again if there was an emergency, what would we do?
I think DD was probably around 3? I have a long-term medical condition and at that time it was just the two of us- I taught her so if anything happened to me she could get help. She never once rang out of curiosity.
I taught my ds at 4-5.I told him how they can only be phoned in proper emergencies,and gave him a couple of scenarios about when you need to call for paramedics,police,fire and the coast guard.he found it very interesting and also gave me a few scenarios himself where it would be appropriate to call 999.
