Well, the monsoons have finally arrived. But that doesn’t mean you’ll be avoiding the pool!
To keep children (and adults!) safe around water, you must practice the ABCs of safety from SRP Safety Connection.
A) ADULT SUPERVISION
Use touch supervision, and make sure to practice eye-to-eye contact around any and all bodies of water. Constant vigilance is the first key to avoiding tragedies!
Use layers of protection to stop children from reaching the pool. Safely lock all doggy doors, windows, gates and regular doors to prevent kids from getting outside without your knowledge. (Installing door, window and pool alarms isn’t a bad idea, either.)
At SWIMkids USA, your child can become accustomed to the water as early as 6 weeks. We also believe that all caregivers should know CPR, and we offer hands-on classes at least four times a year. Our next class is Saturday, August 23. Follow this link for more information.
