Mommy and Me Go to Swimming Lessons by Angela Kear
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I have a confession. I never knew how to swim until I was seventeen years old in 11th grade (I’m eighteen now by the way). And I never knew why I was so scared of swimming. After reading this book, I’ve came to the conclusion that it’s my parents fault. It really is. My parents were unaware of the importance of learning to swim early. They also did not know how to go about teaching me. That’s because no one had taught them.
If they had read this book, they would have learned that the earlier the (which was me) child is introduced to the water, the safer the child will be and the more comfortable the child will be with the water. They would have learned all of the water skills that they teach in every swimming class (at least all the swimming classes worth paying for. If your swimming class doesn’t teach everything covered in this book or more, than you’ve probably had a run for your money).
Many parents, like my mine, wait until it’s too late, or maybe even forget to teach their child how to swim (and yes there is a time when it’s too late. By then your child will have extreme anxiety of swimming even after they already know how to swim. I now know how to swim and I’m still scared of water). waiting until your child is five or six is pretty late, believe or not.
Overall, this book is great for anyone who has a child that is just learning how to swim. I reminds you that earlier you start, the safer your child will be and shows you exactly how to go about teaching your child how to swim.
