Blue Cross Lies

Blue Cross little lies survey

Christmas is coming. Time to lie to your kids. ‘Santa is watching’ has been revealed as the most common lie parents tell their kids. This was followed closely by ‘we’ll see’ and ‘we’re almost there’. The threat of a lack of presents from Father Christmas was used by 62% of parents to keep their children’s behaviour under control.

St John Ambulance first aid survey

An unconscious child is the most frightening scenario for 74% of parents according to our recent survey for St John Ambulance. The survey runs in conjunction with a recent video by the charity which urges parents to learn CPR in case of emergency situations. Our survey of 2,000 parents found that only 1 in 4 would know what to do if they were faced with a child that wasn’t breathing.
