BIGGEST MISTAKE PARENTS MAKE FOR THEIR CHILD'S SAFETY
We borrowed this from Swim Lessons University but it is well worth your time to watch the video!
One of the BIGGEST mistakes parents make from a safety perspective is not giving their child the opportunity to continue learning how to REALLY SWIM! By the time a child is 5 years of age, he is capable of swimming the length of most any re...sidential pool using formal strokes such as freestyle (front crawl) and backstroke. As a physical educator, I strongly encourage parents to have their children participate in a variety of sports and activities--BUT NEVER as a substitute to becoming a competent swimmer. If your child is five years old and can't swim freestyle with side breathing (as seen in this video), please twice about re-prioritizing his or her activities. http://youtu.be/VIXbsOVC1_
