The most important factor in keeping kids safe around water is without a doubt constant supervision. Watch children around any water environment (pool, lake, tub, toilet, bucket of water), no matter what skills your child has acquired and no matter how shallow the water. Be close enough to reach the child at all times, particularly for young children. Because drowning occurs quickly and quietly, adults should not be involved in any other distracting activity while supervising children in or around water.
