Whether or not you plan to head to the pool or the beach, water is all around us – in rivers, lakes, drainage ditches, even large puddles. Becoming water-safe is essential for both parents’ and children’s well-being. Equip your child with this life skill and you’ll also be giving him/her access to all the fun and fitness the water can provide! In addition to water safety, swimming is a great activity for recreation that can be enjoyed by all ages. Every parent would like their child to be able to swim well enough to enjoy the beach, boating trips, pool parties, and other water activities. At some point in their lives, most children will have a need to become safe and competent swimmers.
