Being a parent is hard work. While it can seem like dirty diapers and late-night feedings are the hardest things to keep up with, there are some more serious skills that moms and dads need to know as well. This enterprising mother compiled a handy list of 10 first aid skills that every parent should know.

And if you’re looking for some advice on how to provide care until professionals arrive, there are skills such as first aid for severe bleeding from the Mayo Clinic.
