What Every Parent Needs To Know About Drowning
Jan 15, 2024
Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death of children under 5 in the United States. It’s a statistic that we are trying to change every single day by teaching water safety at our Emler Swim School locations. Drowning happens quickly, and usually very silently. It’s not like what you see on tv and the movies, and we want to make sure that everyone is prepared for any scenario around the water.
Summertime is prime time for families to be enjoying time around the water. It’s important to be aware of some basics on how to prevent drowning. Enrolling your child in swim lessons as early as infanthood is a critical step in making sure your child is prepared to spend time in the water. We believe in teaching your child to swim before they even know how to walk. To find out more information about how Emler can help your child develop their water safety skills click here.
