Explain that an emergency means you or someone else is badly hurt or in danger. Ask your child if they think any of these are an emergency and discuss why or why not: You are home alone and fall down the stairs and your leg hurts really badly. You come home from school and your cat is missing. There is a fire in your house. You cannot wake up your mom. Your sister or brother is yelling at you.
