Your Kids Can Swim So They Don't Need Supervision? Think Again! by Dr. Heidi Renner
Parents should never feel that a child doesn’t need supervision around water just because they’ve had swimming lessons. Never. All children need to be supervised around water, regardless of level of skill. Still, all children, and adults for that matter, older than the age of 5 should have swimming lessons.
Guess what? You are never too old to learn to swim, and you are much safer around water if you know the basics of swimming. Not to mention, learning how to swim is fun and good for your health!
