In a recent interview with the publication, the couple disclosed that they are not teaching their sons, Askel and Asher, how to float or do a breaststroke but rather how to survive in water through the Infant Swimming Resource self-rescue instruction.

Bode and Morgan welcomed their twin sons in November 2019 and described their birth as "pure magic," which has helped with their healing journey.

Morgan, a professional beach volleyball player, explained that the ISR teaches children to be aware of water and makes them "understand how to save themselves in any situation."

She noted that the self-rescue skill could have preserved her daughter, Emmy, who drowned in a neighbors pool while her parents were there for a party. Bode, a 42-year-old former Olympic skier reiterated his wife's statement, saying:

"We've chosen to focus on the ISR stuff because that empowers the child. They're more or less a prepackaged safety mechanism going around."

However, Morgan noted that some other parents find the ISR training unbearable because of the child's cry, but she encourages them to press on because she would give anything to hear her late daughter cry again.

While the twins are still in training, the 33-year-old mentioned that their older son Easton already took the training and would be back to learn some more during summer.

Today recalls that Bode and Morgan welcomed their twin sons in November 2019 and described their birth as "pure magic," which has helped with their healing journey. In a previous interview with Today, the mourning parents opened up about the grief they felt at Emmy's tragic death, saying:

"There's not a day that goes by that I don't pray for the opportunity to go back to that day and make it different."

They recounted the eventful day of June 10, 2018, saying that it was just like every typical day until she fell in the neighbor's pool in Orange County, California.

Early this month, Miller paid tribute to her lost angel on the second anniversary of her demise with a touching post on her Instagram Story, according to People Magazine.

In the two posts, she gushed about missing her baby girl and how little Emmy would have loved being a big sister to Askel and Asher.
