Kids are not silly. Our eldest, when only 2 showed SWMBO how to light the kerosene heater on winter when we were living "south" for a short time. I was at work but he had seen me light it several times, but SWMBO had never need to as my mother was usually there and did the deed.
When SWMBO taught swimming, she'd teach all of the youngsters CPR, despite the fact that they were way too young to perform it. It saved a kids life because one of those kids was able to talk an adult through the process when a younger sibling nearly drowned.

The green green green song is a good choice too - it all depends on to whom one called last...
Since all of us were grown before cell phones, none of us would know it unless we learned it in connection with our own small children or grandchildren. I don't know it personally, either. (But, I would hazard a guess that there are some mp3 or wav versions on the net somewhere.):)

The story.

unmasked, in case of trouble with the link:
http://newsok.com/911-song-helps-guthrie-girl-3-get-aid-for-mother/article/3261415/?tm=1214285083

The Nine One One song features lyrics which include "Nine one one green." When the little girl's mother was unconscious, she remembered the song and dialed 911, then pushed green (on the Blackberry computer-cell-phone), connecting her to the emergency operator, and helped the emergency medical people find her home.

It sounds as if she had not mastered her home address yet, but she could tell what color cars were in front of the house, etc., until the emergency people arrived.

I think this came up because she got some recognition for this today. I wonder if she even remembers much about the day--that is awfully young!:o:o:o:D:D

Comments are welcome. Would you have thought a girl so young could do this? How young did you train your kids to summon help?
