In the summer, you’re likely to want to cool off by the pool with your children. To enjoy the water safely, follow these tips!
Before your child enters the water, create a routine, including to ask for your permission. They will then be less likely to jump in without your awareness. Ensure to apply sunscreen and try life jackets or floaties.
Encourage your child to learn how to swim. Teach them where and how to get out of the pool and the dangers of open water. Teach them to open their eyes under water without goggles so if they fall in they can open their eyes and swim back to safety.
Always actively supervise children around water. Keep children within an arm’s reach at all times. Ensure you know CPR and first aid and enrol your children in swimming lessons.
