Arm floaties aren’t enough
Kids love the water, so when people think of swimming pools, the mental image often includes frolicking kids as well. Kids who grew up with a pool are often good swimmers, but many others don’t have that skill. Parents buy the “water wings” or “arm floaties” but unfortunately, many assume that this is a substitute for experience and ability in the pool. Many children drown in their own family swimming pools because no one was watching and the floaties slipped off.
