Many families head to the water for the summer. Pre-planning for kids' safety is always a concern for parents. Swim lessons start at an early age. They review boating safety rules if that’s part of the water adventures. Life jackets get updated for growing children and get safety whistles attached. But there’s more to consider.

These days parents remember to lather up the sunscreen to keep burns to a minimum. Good job parents! Some even put kids in long-sleeve swimwear to prevent arms and shoulders from being neglected! Great job parents! As kids age, parents worry about how much skin is showing. Kids may not appreciate the extra care, but stand strong parents!

Black may be understated and slimming, but will it be seen underwater? Blue and grey suits may have cute fishies on them, but can a person see that suit from above the water? What is the best color suit for optimal visibility and safety? Does the suit need to be solid, or can it have patterns?

Thankfully, studies have been done for parents who haven’t done every bit of research on every topic of safety for every scenario that will ever be needed for child-rearing. It’s exhausting.
