Health Tip of the Day

Water Safety Tips for Parents

  • Watch children at all times when they are near water -- even in a wading pool.

  • At pool parties, have adults take turns watching the children.

  • If you have a pool, enclose it with a fence and a locked gate or a locked cover. (The law requires this in many states.) Remove toys from the area so that kids aren't tempted to go near the pool.

  • Make sure baby-sitters know the safety rules about swimming.

  • Take a cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) class.

  • Check with your local American Red Cross chapter or YMCA about special life jackets for infants and children.

Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is called the "silent killer" because it has no symptoms. If high blood pressure remains unchecked, it can lead to stroke, heart attack, heart failure, and more. You can stop this silent killer — if you catch it in time.
