John Flanagan: Your experience is heartfelt and touching. It is true that all it takes is a couple of seconds for a child to quietly slip under the water, lose consciousness, and drown. It is very hard for parents who lose their children in these situations. It is so important to remain vigilant and protective of the little ones in our care. I am a firm believer I teaching children how to swim at the very earliest age possible. In NY, there was a local "water babies" program in our area and it was open year round, using pool facilities indoors and there were many parents with toddlers going through the instructions, and the children seemed to love it. Such programs should be available here in Arizona, if they are not already conducted.
