AquaEars for Children is a soft silicone earplug that offers dual protection for water-sensitive ears by sealing out water and reducing ear discomfort due to water pressure.To help your kids stay protected and happy this swimming season, AquaEars has a new line of fun and colorful licensed character ear plugs including Finding Nemo, Hello Kitty, SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and ©Disney.
Here are 4 water safety tips for you to follow next time your child takes a dip:
· Be an Explorer: Always take the time to explore around the swimming area to help your child identify the location of lifeguards, water preservers, bathrooms facilities, depth markers with shallow and deeps ends, sitting areas, and even other swimmer’s behavior in the area.
· Pump your Brakes: Never allow children to run or even walk fast around or in a swimming area. The spillover and foot traffic from the water makes surfaces wet and slippery and children can easily injure themselves or others by falling on the hard surface or even in a body of water. Using the © Disney/Pixar Cars AquaEars ear plugs are a great way to remind them to “pump their brakes” and walk while enjoying water activities.
· Find Some Water Buddies: Even if a lifeguard is on duty, a child should never swim alone and should always have an adult supervising by land and preferably by sea. Never leave any child unsupervised by or in the pool or other body of water.
· The Fish Test: Your child may be more confident about their swimming abilities than you are so before they start to swim ask them to pass the ‘fish test’ by showing you some basic swimming techniques such as holding their breath, treading water and swimming underwater. Be honest about their ‘fish test’ results by telling them where they are able or unable to venture based on your observations. Make sure the lifeguard supports your ‘fish test’ findings.
