Constant Supervision

Constant Supervision - Always

Given a particular situation, anyone can drown, including Olympic swimmers, lifeguards and certainly babies who have had swimming lessons.

Being safety conscious is just as important as any training you give your child. When visiting a new water environment, spend a minute or two becoming familiar with potential dangers and mentally go through in your mind what you would do in an emergency situation. Who would you send to summon help etc.

In an emergency your capacity to reason is blocked and what you have stored in your below-reasoning level awareness is triggered off. If you have learnt resuscitation techniques you are less likely to panic and will act in the appropriate manner.

You may one day save a life, and it could be the life of your child.
