Patch invites you and your circle of friends to help build a community of support for mothers and their families right here in Somerset County.
Each week in Moms Talk, our Moms Council of experts and smart moms take your questions, give advice and share solutions.
Have a question you would like to share, or just want to provide your opinion on the question of the week? Head over to the comments section to do just that.
So grab a cup of coffee and settle in as we start the conversation today with a question from your Patch editors:
The summer has officially begun, with schools out, pools open and beach trips being planned. Families take trips down to the shore and to local swim clubs to spend days and fun times.
So the question is, how do you promote water safety with your kids, and keep them safe? How do you encourage them to be safe in the water and understand how to take care of themselves?
