    Please don’t sit glued to your phone, e-book reader or anything else while your kids are in the pool. A friend’s 9 year old daughter drowned and has since passed away after a mishap at the town pool 2 weeks ago. The mom was on her phone, the lifeguard did not see her slip under until it was too late. Drowning is silent, there is no screaming or flailing. They go down and submerge before you even realize what’s going on. There were hundreds of people in the pool, many near her. No one noticed. It’s up to the person who brings the children into the pool area to not take their eyes off of them, don’t rely on lifeguards or others to watch your kids. My friend learned a lesson she will never forget.

      You are so correct, Katie! I have older grandkids now, but of course, one shouldn’t take time out for younger kids and not pay attention, without having another adult supervising. I will make sure to edit that to add a note. Thank you for the safety reminder!
