Did you know that May is National Water Safety Month? It's important to educate our families about water safety. Even though both my girls have taken years of swimming lessons, I still take the time to remind them of important safety tips for being in and around water.
- Never swim alone;
- Walk, don't run in the pool area;
- Don't jump on others;
- No eating while in the pool;
- Never leave the gate to the pool area open.
We also visit the Outer Banks each summer, so I remind the kids on our first day at the beach and numerous other times while there not to swim out too far and to swim where the lifeguard and their father and I can see them. Not that I'll be much help, I don't swim at all. I've seriously been considering a swimming class, because with the kids being such water bugs, I don't feel comfortable not knowing how to take care of them if they get in trouble. Which reminds me, I need to get recertified in CPR. I haven't taken a class in years.
Summer is a time for cookouts, amusement parks, and swimming. Reminding your family about water safety rules will ensure that you all have tons of fun in the sun!
