Staying Home Alone
with Judy Emch
Designed by an experienced educator and Red Cross Trainer, this popular favorite teaches 8-11 year olds the fundamentals of the challenging new experience of staying home alone for short periods of time. Through puzzles, games and activities, students learn what they need to know in case a problem arises, such as parent cell phone numbers and which neighbors can be counted on to help, as well as when to call 911, safe and unsafe "home alone" activities, and what to do if there is a fire or other emergency. Course includes a take home booklet for each child to share with parents, and a certificate of completion.
