Why do people with their PSA's talk down to folk like they are stupid? I see an alligator I'm not going to f'in cuddle it, when it comes to teaching kids to swim it doesn't start with the bath, it starts with a f'in swimming instructor.
How would you feel if some idiot patronised you because you couldn't teach your kid long division? It's insulting to doting parents who watch their kids like a hawk.
I wouldn't set an infant on fire to teach parents about fire safety, that is all.

I was afraid of the swimming pool when I was a kid. Was afraid to learn how to swim. At 5 years old my dad picked me up tossed me in an d I have been an excellent swimmer ever since.
...Second, if you talk down to people and speak them like they are idiots , and if you can do it from some kind of perceived place of authority, most people will believe you, assume they are stupid, stop thinking and just turn the brainwork over to you.
I've been told kids automatically hold their breath underwater.
Firstly, it starts with a woman unceremoniously pouring a cup of water over over an infants head in the bath, while saying swimming lessons begin in the bath as the poor young girl looks to be in distress as she struggles, as the woman says that the bath should be drained after before Baby is out of the tub,
