Many parents wonder whether useful water classes for young children, and how are they safe? But the most important thing when you can begin to engage in swimming with your baby? Well, it all depends on how old your kids and what do you mean by swimming lessons?
Early in the American Academy of Pediatricians believed that giving the child to the pool should be 4 years. It is assumed that at this age, children already developed enough to start swimming.
But in recent years this view has changed. Although the American Academy of Pediatricians still advises starting classes swimming only after 4 years, they are also not against various kinds of water-related programmes and swimming for kids are younger, aged up to four years.
But the early classes does not mean that your kids engaged in swimming, there will be no problem to stay afloat. Now water programs for infants and toddlers up to four years is very popular among parents and children. Using these classes, you can instill in your child a love for water. Parents do these lessons can teach water safety. While these lessons do not reduce the risk of child drowning. These programmes must be under adult supervision and with due regard to safety. While studies show that children past this program, learn the basics of sailing.
Early swimming lessons help a child learn to swim faster?
Most likely not. Another research shows that it doesn't matter whether children begin to engage in swimming at the age of 2, 3 or 4 years, they begin to swim well at the age of five and a half years.
At the same time, sending children to the pool or to any classes in the water, don't forget that drowning is a major cause of unintentional injuries and fatalities among young children. Also, be aware that the mortality rate as a result of drowning is highest among children aged from one year to two years.
We encourage you and your child to enjoy water lessons of any sort, but precautions all the time. Remember that no aquatic produce ability to stay on the water for your baby, and during all lessons must be under the supervision of an adult, no matter how they swim or not. Even if a kid wears a vest or sleeves. In any case, you can't hurt to familiarize yourself with the so-called "monitoring methodology with a touch", advises the American Academy of pediatricians. This methodology is based on the adult responsible for children, was always at arm's length from the child in the water.
