WATER SAFETY TIP #1

Teach the habit of asking permission before getting into any water. Have your child repeat the phrase, “Before I get into the pool, I must always ask first.” This is an IMPORTANT rule. Children should always ask you or another adult for permission before entering the water. They should always have someone watching them around water, therefore there should always be an adult available to ask.
