  1. Holly Noah

    It will be such a great lesson for my Childcare and Responsible Parenting classes.

  2. Sarah Ohl

    It was a great experience for my students to see where damage might occur if a child was shaken. They were saddened by the long term damage caused. A student lost a cousin to shaken baby syndrome three years ago so this was a very real experience for us.

  3. Bonita

    It is a great eye-opener for people to see the damage that can happen so quickly.

  4. Lindsey Harrell

    I absolutely love the RealCare Shaken Baby. It is super easy to use and the Lesson Plans are great that come along with it. Students are amazed and shocked by what can happen and how fast it can happen.

  5. Robin Thomas

    Very real to life situation of what can happen to a baby if they are shaken.

  6. Lin Venable

    Easy to use and demonstrate brain damage from shaking a baby. Lesson plan is thought provoking with videos and activities to follow and use.
