Think safety before swimming
Parents need to be mindful of children, always making sure they are supervised. For young children, the Red Cross advocates “reach supervision,” meaning someone stays within an arm’s length of the swimmer. Flotation devices and inflatable toys are not acceptable substitutes for a watchful eye; such devices can overturn or slip away from children.
Home pools should be secured so that children cannot accidentally fall in and pool covers should be completely removed before pool use. Toys should be kept away from the pool to prevent the risk of attracting kids.
