Tips For Keeping Kids Safe In Open Water

Description

A new report from Safe Kids Worldwide and Nationwide’s Make Safe has some scary findings for parents. Findings from the report, published in part by Offspring say, "More children drown each year in open water—such as lakes, rivers and oceans—than in pools or other water sources." But pediatrician Dr. Marcee White says there are lots of things parents can do to keep their kids safe. They include: 1. Teach your children that swimming in open water is different (and could be more difficult) than in a pool. 2. Teach your kids 5 key water survival skills: "1) Step or jump into water over their head and return to the surface. 2) Turn around and orient to safety 3) Float or tread water 4) Combine breathing with forward movement in the water 5) Exit the water" 3. Learn CPR and water rescue skills White adds, “Learning basic rescue skills and CPR may help you save a child’s life.”

  • Vrai ou faux : la France est-elle le pays qui taxe le plus les cigarettes ?

    Au vu du niveau de taxation dans l'Hexagone, nous ne sommes pas loin d'être le pays qui taxe le plus les cigarettes. En effet, sur un paquet de tabac qui coûte 10 euros, 85% du prix part dans les caisses de l'État. Ce qui est trop élevé par rapport à la majorité de nos voisins européens avec la Belgique taxant à 78% et le Luxembourg à 69%. Cependant, nous ne sommes pas les champions, mais nous sommes sur le podium avec la Finlande et l'Estonie qui taxent les cigarettes plus que nous.
