    As pools are awesome, children always love to play in it. But it's important to remember that a pool's sides and bottom are usually made of concrete, a rock-hard material. A slip or fall could be painful and dangerous. Swimming is a lot of fun, but drowning is a real danger. Children between the ages of 1 and 4 are most at risk for fatal and nonfatal drowning. The majority of child drownings occur when children get into the pool on their own. Recently, I came across an article on how to make your pool area safe with a home security system. The article says to install cameras, self-locking fences, detectors and gate contacts in order to prevent the kids from falling into the water. Supervision by a lifeguard or designated water watcher is important to protect children when they are in the water, whether a pool or bathtub. Hence always make sure that your kid enters the pool under your supervision. Hence take care of your kids to protect them from the accidents in water.
