Keep Your Kids Safe from Water
Dangers In Your Home

Water can be dangerous to young children year round, not just in the summer. Constant, active adult supervision is needed to keep children safe around any body of water – including bathtubs, toilets and even buckets.

Bath time is a great time to bond with young children. Make sure your children have fun and stay safe in the tub by closely watching them every second. Run your hand through the water to test for hot spots, before letting children in the tub. Since children have thin skin that can burn easily, the temperature of the water in your home is important. Check your hot water heater and make sure the temperature in your home is set to 120 degrees Fahrenheit.
