Swimming Lessons Means Summer Is Coming

Posted by Erin K. | Friday, May 24, 2013


It's that time of year when everyone with kids starts talking about swimming lessons!  At least where I live, this seems to be the hot topic lately.  Are you going to do them?  What age is the best to start?  Is it really worth the money spent?

I haven't signed my 16 month old Cameron up for lessons yet, but I have been taking him to a local pool and actually trying out some of the tips and tricks that my friends whose kids are in classes have passed along to me.  I'd like to teach him how to float on his back, roll over and swim towards a wall for safety reasons.

My friend whose son is in the Baby Seals class shared with me that, "80% of teaching a toddler to swim is being mean to them," by dunking them and allowing them to learn by doing.  I suppose this is why many parents opt to have someone else teach their children how to swim versus teaching it themselves.

With swimming lessons on the horizon, summer can't be too far off!  Have you started considering swimming lessons for this summer?  What other summer activities are you looking forward to?

    We can't register our kids for swimming lessons until June 3rd. Which I guess is just around the corner, isn't it I'm still waiting for the temperatures to warm up a bit. It is too cold to even play outside, let alone go swimming!

    Howdy! I just would like to give a huge thumbs up for the nice data you’ve got here on this post.

    I will probably be coming again to your weblog for more soon.

    We did swimming lessons this Spring so the kids would be comfortable and ready to swim this summer. The weather is always questionable here, so we did them indoors. I think it's great to introduce children to the water at a young age!

    That's a good thing that at the early age of your kids, you're training them to be a good individual and even be better in their own chosen fields.

    This product does not require sunbathing or messing with gooey unmanageable creams
    or complicated sprays. Computer equipment is mainly reduced in price
    when there is a sale of the equipment. It is better to go for
    the products that contain dihydroxyacetone (DHA).
