Essential first aid information for every parent or caregiver from the American Academy of Pediatrics, the international authority on child health and well-being. The ability to provide basic care for an injured or ill child is a fundamental skill set that every parent or guardian should have.

Developed by experts at the American Academy of Pediatrics, First Aid for Families: A Parent’s Guide to Safe and Healthy Kids provides immediate access to vital first aid information on a range of common childhood illnesses and emergencies. This essential home resource gives parents the confidence they need to provide timely and appropriate care.
