It’s that time of the year. It’s blistering hot, the kids are out of school and the water is warm.
PLEASE remember to watch your kids around water! I know you hear it ALL THE TIME. But apparently there are still people that don’t get it.
IT ONLY TAKES A SECOND! One second for a child to slip, fall, or intentionally get into a swimming pool where THEY CAN DIE. You HAVE to watch your kids around water constantly.
Don’t let your child become a horrific statistic. Kids die here every single summer because someone, “turned away just for a second”.
My kids are 12 and 14. They swim like fish. But they do not swim alone, EVER. All it takes is a slip, and a crack of the head on the edge of the pool and a person CAN DIE.
You’ll see it a thousand times this summer. And you’ll see it again right here: PLEASE, WATCH YOUR KIDS AROUND WATER!
