This summer I want my children to enjoy our time in the water whether it be the beach or just a day of swimming in a pool. We recently planned a day to the beach and during my preparations I spoke to the kids about our plans like I do with many of our events or travel plans.
I told the importance of being great listeners and staying close but I knew during our visit I’d have to emphasize many of our safety rules.
My father shared his concerns of me taking the kids alone to the beach. Handling two kids under the age of 5 can be a handful especially in a place where things can get out of hand really fast.
