Summertime and swimming go hand in hand, but if you’re a mom of littles, visits to the pool or having one in your backyard can erupt in a panic of worry. And rightly so—drowning is the number one cause of injury-related death in children ages 1 to 4. But putting in place a safety plan, as well as teaching kids swimming early on, can significantly reduce the chance of it happening. We wanted to know what we can do to make swim time safer, so this week, we’ll be sitting down with Taylor Crayton, the Aquatics Director at British Swim School Hudson Waterfront for our weekly check-in and chat series on Instagram LIVE. She’ll be sharing advice for keeping your little ones safe in the water and ways you can prevent drowning in any water environment, along with tips for teaching water safety to kids as young as three months. Head over to our Instagram page on Wednesday at 8:30 PM and click the live button on our logo. Send a quick hello in the comments, tell us how you’re doing, or ask us a question—we’d love to hear from you.
