Kids love water parks, but carelessness can lead to accidents. A few steps of precaution could save a child's life.
* Instruct your children to pay attention to the rules. They should go down a water slide feet first and move out of the way quickly once they have exited the slide. This will avoid a collision with another child.
* Make sure the lifeguards are present at both ends of each ride to help kids on and off.
* Make sure the water at the end of the ride isn't over the child's head. Pay attention to those signs about height requirements and swimming ability.
* If the water park allows it, consider having your kids wear life jackets.
