When should a child learn how to swim?

Kids are quite fond of playing in the water. However, many parents are afraid to put their kids in the water or teach them to learn swimming even if they want to learn. They think probably the kids need to be a bit more grown up before they can be taught swimming. However a recent research made by American Pediatrics suggests that a kid should rather put into swimming training while they are below 4 years of age. At that age the probability of the kids getting drowned is much less than when they grow older. So if you had not used your backyard pool recently in fear that your kid might get drowned, you should rather contact a Pool Service Wilton CT for a complete renovation of your pool so that bit works properly and appoint a trainer to teach your kids how to swim as soon as possible.

The researchers suggested that €'AAP should now relax the policy about the age at which the children are allowed to start learning swimming skills''. In the old policy AAP had no empirical evidence on the age when the kids should be allowed to swim and the above mentioned age group had been discouraged to the parents.

AAP researchers have found that a major number of kids within the age group 1-19 either die or get fatal injury because of drowning and of them a majority of the kids are below the prescribed age limit. And in fact drowning is in the second position of the children death causes. Therefore AAP finds it really necessary to facilitate swimming lessons for the kids in order to save them from such unwanted injury or death. And the kids from the age group of 1 to 4 are quite able to start their swimming lessons.

However, AAP also prescribes that not all children can start to learn swimming at an earlier age. If a kid has some cognitive disability they should be given time to overcome that before they are sent for swimming practices. They also provide lots of safety tutorials and tips for the kids. The companies that comply with the kids' safety rules adopted by AAP will teach you all the necessary information that you need to know before you contact your Pool Renovation Darien CT for a pool renovation. You should be really attentive to this issue and work together with the academy to ensure a safe swimming lesson for your kid, especially as summer is nearby.
