It is January and many cities and States are bracing for the Winter chills and snows with the associated chilly weather. Other States like California, Florida, and Hawaii enjoy warm weather year round in most parts of the State. A recent article posted at the Woodburn (Minnesota) Independent noted that swimming lessons help reduce the risks of drownings. It should be noted that water is present year round. A child should drown in the winter time as easy as he or she could in the summer time. Swimming lessons should be provided to a child as soon it is practical to do so. If swimming lessons are offered for your child’s age group, go ahead and get your child signed up. While swimming lessons will not prevent drownings in every instance, swimming lessons can help avoid tragic drownings and can save a life.
