Some outdoor safety training to chill them out a little

And a little more to make sure they are ready to settle in for some serious training

The Norwich Police and Recreation Department co-sponsored a 6-hour Babysitting Certification Course today for local youth, aged 10-12, who received instruction around CPR, 1st aid, and the safe and responsible care of children. They were additionally taught, practiced, and demonstrated skills such as: proper feeding, meal preparation, and diapering, and reviewed conflict resolution and problem-solving techniques.
