The Safe Sitter course is once again being offered at Trinity Health



Minot, North Dakota – Trinity Health provides a hands-on learning experience in the form of “Safe Sitter” lessons for when a child reaches the age where they are able to watch smaller children as a babysitter.

Liz Larsen, who is a mother of three, expressed her delight at the fact that her daughter has reached the age when she can participate in this class.

The workshop provides skills that are necessary to address emergencies that may occur in real life.

Among the numerous topics that are covered is instruction on how to properly manage an accident and how to perform CPR with only your hands.

According to Kathleen White, who is in charge of community education, having these skills gives young people the ability to become assets to the community.

Students should leave feeling more confident in their ability to look after younger children, and parents should feel more at ease leaving their children in their care when they babysit.

“You can never be too careful with your children, and unfortunately, you never know when a tragic accident could happen,” added Larsen. “You can never be too careful with your children.”

Aeris, Liz’s kid, reveals that she and her sister occasionally get into fights. She really hopes that the seminar would include ways to resolve conflicts.

Aeris expressed her desire to acquire the skills necessary to fulfill her role as a babysitter by stating, “Kids can hurt each other, and we don’t like it when kids hurt each other.”

Trinity Health Riverside’s Education Center, is also where all of the classes are held.

Registrations are currently being taken for the 21 and 22 of June, the 12, 13, 19, 20, 26, and 27 of July, and the 9 and 10 of August.

Classes are offered at the Education Center at Trinity Health Riverside from 8:30 in the morning to 2:30 in the afternoon.

The cost of the class is $60.
