Swim Lessons Needed!
So is swim lessons needed? I’ve been doing a lot of reading, watching and listening to summer news.
Meaning I’ve been paying attention mainly to whats going on in the water, ocean and pools.
It is very interesting & also tragic to read that drowning is the second leading cause of death in children under the age of 14.
I have to tell ya, I did not know that one.
Some people would say, “Curtis what does it matter to you weather my kid swims or not?” “Is swim lessons needed really?”
Well for one I love to teach swimming lessons weather it be a child or an adult.
Two I have almost drowned & luckily I was equipped with the knowledge and skills to get out of it.
It is not a situation you or your child should ever be in.
There are ways to prevent such a thing from happening. Children love the water, if your going to let them swim or be in the bathtub for that matter give them skills.
Like I said I was blessed to have had parents that equipped me with skills to prevent something tragic from happening.
Now of course ocean is a difference from a pool.
If your child is at least set up with basic swimming skills and safety rules it will only increase the chances of your child getting out of those unfortunate situations.
I do feel that some from of swim lessons needed for a child. It helps with all around health and fitness.
Having them participate in swim lessons at least 1X a week is extremely helpful. Repetition is key.
