Whether it’s in a swimming pool, a lake, or the ocean, swimming is a great way to get active. Though swimming is fun for adults and kids alike, it is essential to practice proper safety to help prevent trips to an emergency pediatrician in the DFW area. Supervise your children whenever they are playing in or around the water, and make sure you go with your younger children when they are swimming. Encourage your kids to learn how to swim by enrolling them in lessons when they are ready, and learn CPR so you can take action if there is an emergency. Prevent injuries and the need for urgent care by reminding your children to walk, not run, around pool areas. Check out this Infographic to learn more helpful swimming safety tips.
