Drowning is the second leading cause of accidental death in children one to fourteen years old. The majority of the children that drown are under the age of five.
Ever since my daughter fell into our backyard pool without a sound or a ripple, I have become a staunch advocate for water safety and drowning prevention. Please read the articles below to make sure you are keeping your child safe. One of the best things you can do is to teach your child how to swim. Formal swim lessons have been shown to reduce the risk of drowning by 88%!
