It's not just about swimming...it's about surviving.
A parents best line of defense for protecting their child in and around the water is constant supervision. However, on occasion adult supervision and other prevention meaures can break down. Watching your child is not enough, nor is a pool safety gate able to protect them from every hazardous water situation. Arm your child with an extra layer of protection in the unfortunate event that supervision lapses – even momentarily - and he or she finds himself or herself in the water alone.
