This project's goal is to effectively communicate to parents nationwide. The nationwide childhood drowning statistics have not changed in decades! Why? What can we do differently. Let's be effective. Parents need to connect with other parents. That is what Parents Preventing Childhood Drowning aims to do.

I was a skeptic before my oldest child's first lesson. We had spent many hours playing in the water together, but at 6 months old he had no ability to "survive" without me. Half way through his first lesson with Carmen our ISR instructor, Jake was able to roll on his back and float - he doidn't like it - but he could do it! That was all the proof I needed and my wife and I were able to get all three of our kids trained through ISR. Thanks to the instruction each of our kids could roll over and float independently - fully clothed - before they could speak. Each of the boys has used their skills to save them selves after falling into the water. You can't put a price on that piece of mind as a parent. The Swim Safe Forever scholarship program helps other parents to be able to afford the lessons required to teach their child these lifesaving skills. Your donation to this organization will save the life of a local child!

ISR was the best money we ever spent on our family. I could see that when each of my three kids learned how to "handle themselves" in the water. But the value of these skills didn't hit home for me until the afternoon my youngest son fell off his Uncle's dock into the river. He was right next to me and in an instant, he was gone. I couldn't see him, I couldn't jump in for fear of hurting him, so I waited (for what seemed like an eternity) to see him pop to the surface with a smile then roll onto his back take a breath and look for my hand... Just another adventure for him! Thanks Carmen -
