Bow-wow Mew Game
Children’s Sickness and Health
The theme of the day’s playgroup was "Children's Sickness and Health." The speakers, Kazue, Naoko and Kazuko, explained what to do when your child is suddenly sick at night when the hospital is closed. We leaned some practical things we can do to help when our children are suffering from heatstroke, vomiting or diarrhea as well as some first aid tips. They also taught us some useful words to describe common symptoms.
We also learned about when to call 119 and how to get appropriate medical treatment. First we practiced how to call an ambulance and learnt what questions they would ask. Participants practiced the conversation in pairs in Japanese and English.
