Teaching Your Kids Water Safety
Swimming pools, tropical beaches and freshwater ponds all provide exciting sporting entertainment and cooling relief from the hot summer sun, but water is dangerous for young children if they are left unattended, even for a second, or if you don’t take proper precautions. When near water, if a child does not know how to swim then an adult should always be within easy reach of them, in the event that a child accidentally falls in the water.
Children need to be supervised at all times around water, but there are ways of teaching your kids water safety from a formative age to ensure they understand the importance of water safety and can begin the steps towards learning how to swim and survive in the water themselves.
If you’re not sure how to teach your child the basics of water safety it’s always best to consult a professional who can help your child gain confidence in the water, learn about safety and, ultimately, learn how to swim.
