Did you know that it only takes an inch of water for a small child to drown? A child should never be left unattended near water no matter how small the amount. Spending time swimming with our children can be lots of fun, but it must also come with lots of diligence. Always be within arm’s reach of small children. Older children should have an adult observing at all times. If you are swimming with a group take turns supervising. It is also important to have the proper flotation devices for your children. Knowing how to administer CPR can save a life. Take the time to receive the proper training.
