When Things Go Wrong: Bloody Noses
Babysitting in the summer months when outside play is a given is my favorite. I love playing basketball, riding bikes, and all the other fun games that are suited for the great outdoors.
I’ll never forget the first time I had to face a bloody nose as a babysitter. No, it wasn’t my nose from being bonked in the face with a toy (that was another babysitting situation … those toddlers don’t know their strength!).
I was babysitting a school age boy and we were playing outside. I went inside to make a snack for us when Max came in holding his nose. When he removed his hand, all I saw was blood. ALL OVER HIS FACE!
In my Safe Sitter® class, I was taught that I can handle a bloody nose myself. Check out this video to learn exactly what to do if you find yourself in the same situation.
