This is just a little story that I love to share.... and it's true!
A few years ago there were several occurrences of house fires in the Atlanta area . Each were families with young children and each had the bedrooms on the second floor. Though all family members were saved from the fires, when interviewed, the parents responded that they had never taught their children safety skills. What to do in case of a fire? What to do if someone needs help or is hurt? Have you?
At that precise moment, a light went on at The American School of Protocol. We must include safety skills in our curriculum! Children need to know what to do and how to act in the face of emergencies. So the journey began and the course was developed. There is even a piece of the course offered to children as young as 3 years old....but this story does not end here.
With the new course in place, a young boy named David attended one of our classes. A few days after he had successfully graduated, with certificate in hand, he became ill and had to stay home from school. David was alone in his room when he heard a crash and discovered that his mother had fallen down the stairs and was lying unconscious. Because of his training, David knew just what to do and calmly called for help which saved his mother's life!
We thought that was such a good story and one that should be shared. We wanted more children to know what to do in emergency situations so we published a book! The book is called "Rio Speaks"
...and that Makes Momma Happy!
