Take the time to teach your children how to swim. If you are not confident in your skills, take them to swim class, or better yet, join them in swim class. Also, most lifeguard associations do not recommend arm floaties for more than one season as they will give your small child a false sense that they know how to swim when they do not. That is why the best deterrent to water accidents is education and well-established safety rules.
