Why your child should wear a life jacket a lot more than you think

Car seat safety in our culture seems pretty cut and dry, and the majority of people understand it. However, a recent (almost drowning) emergency at work made me realize that safety with our kids around water is not as well outlined. As a person working in the marine industry, I do feel a strong obligation to advocate for water safety for all the children out there - boating or not! This post contains good information on when kids should wear life jackets, and how to find the right one to fit them. Thank you for reading, and please do share with other parents out there!

Happy Fleet Week everyone!
