Splash..splash..splash the sound of the water is a real music to one's ear especially for those who enjoy swimming on a warm pool of water on a hot summer day. Swimming is not only one of the best recreational sport for both young and adult but it is also a great way of losing weight or of exercising. But swimming is not that fun if precautions are not taken seriously because accidents like drowning could happen anytime. That is why it is very important to follow rules and to stay safe in the water while swimming especially if there are kids around.

We all know that humans need oxygen or air in order to survive and when a person drowns under water or gets too much liquid into his lungs then it may cause harm to his body or even death. Reports show that one of the most common cause of death of children. This may be because of children swimming without adult supervision or because of neglect of adults watching over kids or simply because children swimming in a pool that is too deep for them. A parent may not have the negative thought of his kid getting drowned but one should keep in mind that accidents can happen anytime but it can be prevented by being cautious and by taking extra care for your kids. Drowning can happen in an instant- in fact it can happen in less than an hour just as fast as a head can go under water. That is why if your kids are going out for a swim in the pool or the beach be sure that they are accompanied by adults and that the person supervising the kids is not under influence of alcohol. It is very important to keep an eye on your kids while they are in the water especially if they still do not know how to swim. Also, it would be best if you instruct your kids the basic safety rules when in the pool.

Swimming is a great way to have fun with family and friends but accidents could happen if you are not careful with your actions. Remember that swimming pools are made of concrete that can cause injury or harm when someone slips or fall. Also, be sure to clean your goggles before you dive into the water; there are many good anti-fog goggle cleaner that is made just for cleaning swimming goggles.
