Summer is here! It is going to be a hot summer in Ohio which means more time in the water – at the pool, waterpark, lake, and vacations at the beach.
Swimming is fun but drowning is the #1 cause of injury and death in young children. There are many things you can do to prevent this tragedy and it starts with water safety.
It is essential that you get your kids ready for all the time they will spend in the water by understanding the fundamentals of water safety and taking swim lessons.
Goldfish Swim School in Hudson wants to remind you and your family about water safety with W.A.T.E.R.
W. Wear Your Life Jacket – be sure children wear child-sized life jackets when on a boat, while swimming if you can’t swim (with adult supervision), and around water.
A. Act – teach your child to throw a life preserver if someone is in trouble – don’t go int he water and put yourself in jeopardy
T. Take – take swimming lessons, it is a valuable life skill that could be life saving
E. Educate – teach your child how to be safe in and around water.
R. Respect – teach kids to respect the rules that are in place to keep them safe
Another awesome idea that Goldfish Swim School has is to have a designated Water Watcher at the pool, beach, or lake. This is an adult that is designated to be watching children without distractions – no phones or talking with other parents. It is easy to get distracted even while talking with another mom at the pool. Be a Water Watcher for your kids or switch back and forth between other adults with you.
The American Red Cross states that the best way to keep your kids safe around water is swim lessons. I personally recommend Goldfish Swim School in Hudson, Ohio. My niece and two nephews are enrolled and have seen remarkable improvements in swimming! They didn’t use to be able to even dunk their heads under water. With weekly lessons, their fear of water has gone away and now they love learning new strokes!
