Children's Safety on Swimming Pool

I know that most of these are simple common sense but I do see some parents with children not following the safety procedure of swimming on a swimming pool. Well, every swimming pool has its own regulations, but most of them got these basic rules.

• Children under 8 and non-swimmers under 14 must be supervised by an adult.

• Avoid wearing jewelry

• Shower before going to the pool and encourage children to use the toilet before swimming.

• Always check the depth markings

• Wear a swim hat or tie your hair if it is long

• do not let your child run around the poolside

• Do not let your child swim if he or she has got a fever, got an injury, or have taken a medication. It is always best to consult a doctor first.

• Even children with armbands should be supervised by an adult.

Remember; always follow the swimming pool regulations as these are issued for you and your Child's safety.

Want to educate my child at home

My little Chloe will turn 5 by the end of the year, so by England law she is required to attend school by September. Now, my husband and I had been thinking about educating her at home as location wise where we are is not a good area and since we cannot move for now, we think this is the best option.

I have not personally met or talk to parents who are doing the same thing to their child/children, so honestly I hope that this is a good decision. I am not a teacher and have not had any experience in teaching but I read on the government website that you do not need to be a qualified teacher to educate your child at home. I would welcome and appreciate any comments, or experience shared from parents who are doing or have done this home education to their child/children.
