Water Safety For Kids

July 13, 2017

Dee Savage, Benefits Analyst

It is extremely important to make sure your children are well-supervised around water. During the summer, kids are really excited to jump right in, yet it only takes a second for an accident to happen. Below are some helpful tips to keep your children safe.

  • Have a conversation about water safety with your child.  Explain to them how swimming and water play can be very fun - as long as they follow the rules.

  • Check with your local parks and recreation centers to see if swimming lessons are available.

  • Don’t assume that a child that knows how to swim isn’t still at risk for drowning.
