Once you become a parent, there are no lengths you wouldn’t go to, to keep your kids safe. You don’t have to go through life looking for things to happen or go wrong, but being informed, knowledge and preventative measures go a long way to ensure your children remain safe and you are steadfast in your role to protect them with child safety means. This means you take precautions and are aware of safety dangers around water, from unsafe people, in crowded places, and situations which can emotionally and physically cause them harm and areas in life which present themselves.
The best thing you can do for your child? Teach prevention, set up regular reminders to review these topics, and educate from an early age.
In the Summer, it’s important to teach not only water safety and pool safety, but as a parent, to know the signs of dry drowning (also called secondary drowning) which can take at the pool or hours, sometimes even days after you leave the pool, as well as signs of drowning, tick prevention and safe removal and preparing to take your kids in crowded places.
Here is a library of resources on Summer & Water Safety, as well as general Child Safety and Safety Rules to teach children, to keep them safe.
