Always actively supervise your child/children at bath time.

Active supervision has four key elements and here they are:



1. Be prepared – always make sure you have everything you need for bathing

your child/children before you enter the bathroom.


2.  Be close – always be within an arms reach of your child/children.


3.  Give all of your attention –  focus all of your attention on your

child/children and watch, talk and play with them whilst they are in the



4.  All of the time –  You should never ever leave your child/children alone in
