WARNING: Why Kids Shouldn’t Wear Blue on Washington State Beaches
Why The Color Blue Could Be A Dangerous Color In Summer At The Beach
Summer is around the corner in Washington State and kids will soon be hitting the water but there is a danger that parents should be aware of before the kids cut loose in the water.
What Is The Danger Of Wearing Blue At The Beach, Pool, And River?
A swim instructor on Tik Tok posted the dangers of kids wearing certain shades of blue swimsuits at the beach or the river.
You might not think something as harmless as the color blue could make a big difference in swimsuits at the beach, pool, and river.
While blue is a popular color for swimwear, the truth is that it may not be the safest choice for kids.
First and foremost, blue is the color that most closely resembles the color of the water.
This can be dangerous because it can make it difficult for parents and lifeguards to spot kids in the water.
If a child is in distress or needs help, it’s essential that they can be spotted quickly. This is especially important in crowded pools or at the beach where there are many people.
Blue swimwear may be a popular choice, but it’s important to consider the risks associated with this color. Consider brighter colors, like pink or orange, which can make it easier to spot your child in the water.
