Children love to play, and when it is hot outside, children especially love to play in the water. It is the adults responsibility to make sure that children are supervised at all times, especially around water. Keep your children safe this holiday, by ensuring that your children always have a sober guardian watching them. Teach your child from a young age to not go near the dam, river, sea or swimming pool without you.Where your house is situated close to a water source, like the farm-house pictured here, guardians must make extra sure that there is no way for a small child to reach the water alone.Sober adult supervision is the key to drowning prevention and water safety.
