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
the bath, and they should never be left in the care of an older child.
Next week we will look at a bath time safety checklist, until then stay safe
with your kids in the bath.
