The American Academy of Pediatrics also emphasizes that swimming is a family activity so parents should also know how to swim.
Other tips from the AAP to prevent drowning include:
- Parents should never leave children alone or in the care of another child while in or near bathtubs, pools, spas or other open water.
- Adults should empty water from buckets and other containers immediately after use — even a small amount of water can be hazardous for a young child.
- Never leave young children alone in the bathroom. Toilet locks can prevent drowning of toddlers.
- Even with older children and better swimmers, the supervising adult should focus on the child and not get distracted with other activities
