This week on If Only They'd Told Me, Jacqui and Nat git a bit more serious and talk about children and accidents.

We often don't like to think about 'near-misses' or 'what ifs' but if we can learn from our most scarry moments with our children, it may help us and others to prevent much worse scenarios. 

Potential hazards include cars (inside and out), kitchen benches, pools, stairs and many more. If this motivates you to look critically at your home and do a quick saftey check, then that's a good thing! 

And when was the last time you did a first aid course? There's probably a good one specifically for parents, available in your area.

The key message for this episode is, 'expect the unexpected'.
