Are you worried the lifeguard will have to give you CPR this summer for cardiac arrest while you worry over your child’s safety while she’s swimming?

Do you wonder what you can do to prevent your child from drowning?

Water safety, especially for young children, is a real issue you should worry about as a parent. I know I do.

There are about 10 deaths from drowning in the United States every day. One in five of those people are children who are under the age of 14. That’s not even counting the people who die from drowning in boating accidents every year. (source)

Many other children who don’t die from drowning suffer other injuries in the water, like brain damage from lack of oxygen.

Like many moms, I worry about everything my child does. But as they say, prevention is the best cure. Armed with the right information, we can all sleep a little easier at night.

In this guide, I will break down everything you should know to protect your children from drowning.
