Therefore, the first rule, which must be observed by all, without exception, lovers of outdoor activities on the seashore, for example, a river or a lake, sounds like this: you can swim only in places designated for such purposes. Up to primary school age, children take water procedures only under the supervision of adults, and mothers and fathers (or grandparents, etc.) are vigilantly watching them. Older children can already swim on their own, but they should be aware of measures to prevent accidents on the water, know the basics of first aid, be able to provide it, identify a drowning person, etc. You need to start putting this information in them from a very young age. Explaining and showing with examples, sharing personal experience and not being afraid to talk about the consequences.
