You got through the first class ok? Did something happen in it that was frightening, or was it just hard to handle due to anxiety?

Hi Invisible,
I'm sure you won't fail, if you did I'm sure you could do the course again.
First aid is really important when caring for children.
Don't panic, do lots of reading on the internet.
We're not fed up of your posts, please post whenever you need to.
Take care

Is there any course materials you can go over, or online videos that would help you get more information, so you would feel a little more confident in what you are doing? Would that help?

Ok, so this good. You have time between now and the class to go over the material, and then when you meet with the instructor, you can draw on that knowledge and hopefully that will boost your confidence in yourself and what you can accomplish. Do you think it might?

Hi,
Anxiety is hard to cope with, try and distract yourself.
Before you know it Monday will be gone and it will be over.
You are prepared as you've been revising, try not to worry.
Take care
