LEARN TO SWIM
Want to learn to swim? Here a some very good tips for you to learn to swim.
Now just having a first aid kit around the pool is not enough to protect children & adults from the dangers of drowning.
There are so many lurking accidents that you may not realize.
Now this isn’t to scare you away from swimming or learning how to swim, but it will hopefully help you to be more cautious.
There are studies shown but not exact, that there are about 3,600 unintentional drowning deaths in the United States alone every year.
That says that coast to coast in America there are more than 10 drowning deaths or related drowning deaths happening every day.
I’m really not feel’n that at all, swimming lessons are a must.
Anyway of those drowning per day, more than 1 in 4 of those people were children younger than the age of 14.
Now that’s not cool at all. I Just wanna open those eyes a bit.
More than 4 times that number had to be taken to the hospital due to injuries related to swimming accidents.
Even when children or adults don’t die from drowning, they can suffer long term brain damage including learning disabilities and memory issues just to say a few.
Now like I said I’m not trying to scare you away from swimming or swim activities, but just in that paragraph of info it told you a lot.
Of course learning how to swim and swimming lessons 4 babies are essential, but being careful and having the right tolls around your swim area are needed.
We would all like to think that nothing is going to happen to us or our children and more than likely it wont. We still need to be prepared with the right tools if it does.
Signs & Rules
While I was running a swim school in Sacramento California I had to have a list of things posted or done.
1. A sign of all the rules/regulations of your pool and area.
2. A sign showing the steps on CPR procedure.
3. A life saving ring with rope.
4. Fence around the pool, certain height.
5. A lock on fence that can only be reached by an adult on the inside of the pool.
6. None slip concrete around the pool.
7. A floating life saving board.
It is different in every city, state and country, but you need to have the basics done at your home pool.
If you minimize the ways yourself and your child of getting hurt or falling in the water when your not around, you will feel a whole lot better about having your children play outside.
Giving your child swimming lessons is a great safety feature for you. And children love to learn to swim even if they are crying at first.
They will love it eventually. You have to stick with swimming lessons just like you need to stick with the rules around your pool at home.
Being safe is always needed when have’n fun in a pool, ocean, lake or pond. So go have fun in the sun and be CAREFUL.
