Freeman teaches safe babysitting practices

JOPLIN, Mo. – Baby sitting is a common job for many young people, but they often don’t get very much training.

Freeman Health System is trying to provide that training through its Safe Sitter Program. Through the program, people can learn CPR and other strategies to keep kids under their care safe and engaged.

Freeman has been providing the safe sitting classes more than 25 years. Advance registration is required for the safe sitter class with a fee of $40 for a one-day session.
