It seems inevitable that kids will throw each other into the pool and it’s rare to hear a child ask if someone can swim before they shove them in the water. Make sure this or an accident doesn’t leave your child, young or old, unprepared. Contact the Red Cross to find qualified swimming instructions in your area. Make sure that regardless of who you choose for swim lessons, they are a good fit with your child. Often older children don’t swim because they have already had a bad experience in the water.

We experienced a difficult start to swim lessons with one of our children, but after we found a teacher that was the right for him, our son ended up loving the water and was never stuck in the shallow end.
