It’s here….summertime that is. Time to bust out the grills, head to the beach and crack open a few tall boys. But not so fast. First let’s talk about a little water safety, especially for our kids.
Although summertime is a fun time of the year and the lake, ocean and pools are ready to go, the growing concern is children safety around the water. I know everyone has there own opinion on this and that is okay, as long as the kids are safe.
If you have a pool, make sure it is gated and locked so your child can not get in it without an adult. If you have an above ground pool, take the ladder off and do not make it accessible until you can go in with your child. Never leave a child unattended in any body of water for even a split second, this included the bath tub as well. It only takes a swallow of water for someone to drown. It has already happened numerous times this year where children have been found in swimming pools and the outcome usually is not good. I am not saying these parents did anything wrong, but maybe they just did not know. Maybe they thought it would not happen to them?
Please please please make sure you have your eyes on your children at all times. It only takes a split second for world to be turned upside down……
