“All The Fun Is In The Water, Not By The Water!” TEACHING YOUR CHILD HOW TO SWIM

Swimming is a huge staple of childhood. For kids lucky enough to grow up near the water, whether it is a pool or the beach, spending long summer days in and out of the water, going to summer camp, and all of the other experiences that go along with being near the water are the things that childhood memories are made of. Too many people make the mistake of thinking that if they aren’t living near the ocean or if they don’t have a pool in their backyard, then these childhood experiences aren’t relevant to their kids. Water is everywhere, and even kids who grow up in areas that aren’t surrounded by water will often find their way to the water for one reason or another. This is why it is so important to teach all children how to swim. Knowing how to swim is more than a hobby that can help your child have some fun during their holidays, it is a potentially lifesaving bit of knowledge that will stay with your child forever.
