What to Teach Kids (and Yourself) About Water Safety Before Hitting the Pool
Don't wait until you get to the water to start teaching your kiddos and yourself about water safety. The more you each understand and talk about ahead of time, the more you both will be likely to remember around the water and during an emergency.
- Teach kids to stay away from drains, suction outlets, and filters in swimming pools and hot tubs.
- Teach your children how to swim and the importance of staying away from the water without supervision.
- Talk to your kids about water safety right before every pool session and consider taking the Pool Safely Pledge together as a family.
