Teach your toddler to call 000

By November 4, 2023No Comments

Have you ever wondered how your toddler can call 000 in an emergency when your iPhone or android is locked?

A few months ago I asked everyone for suggestions on Instagram on how to teach toddlers to phone 000 in case of an emergency.

Keep reading for some tips….

– Go old school and buy a landline phone.

– Go one step better and add photos of important people for your child to recognise and click the picture as a direct line call (this is genius)

– Put your child’s face in your phone for face recognition and teach them where to find the phone icon

– Teach your child how to access emergency calls from a locked phone

– Teach your child how to say your house address. Have it written down somewhere at their height for an easy reminder.

– Create an emergency contact poster with pictures that are easy for a child to recognise. Eg. Photo of police, paramedic and firefighter with 000 written next to it.

Lets make this a common household habit. Teach your children how to contact emergency services to ensure you are all safe. You never know when you might need your toddlers help!
