~*Tyler's Teeth*~ (June 1st, 2011 to June 2nd)

It happen to be a coincidence that the boys teeth cleaning (every six months), to get his “wiggles” done. I was honestly confused, because I asked Tyler to let me try, and nothing was actually moving. I later learned that is what they call it when they remove them to keep fear down.

In addition to providing the safest pool environment possible such as constant adult supervision, fences, covers, and alarms, ISR suggests a program of swimming self-rescue lessons as additional prevention to protect children from accidental drownings.  Children as young as 7 months old learn to hold their breath under water, roll onto their backs and float unassisted.  Older children also learn to swim with their head down, roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe and roll over again to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool to crawl out. 

These skills are taught by certified instructors to assure that a day
