Leading on from my last post. I want to talk about swimming, for some reason where I live it doesn’t seem important, we are not near the sea, nor any massive lake, so swimming just seems to be on the back burner, now before I put on weight I was taking my son swimming and trying to teach him.
But since I put on the weight, I have not got the confidence, plus nothing fits. But I feel its important to teach kids how to swim at the very least how not to drown.
I saw on facebook they have lessons going at the local swimming pool. Now I know what you are thinking how does swimming lessons relate in any to being socialble. Its the whole sitting there with other parents maybe making small talk, while watching your child. (You see that clever link 😉 )
However I feel this is important, but I wonder if 3 is maybe to young and they don’t get the co ordination of the whole kicking legs, waving arms.
So how old were you? or your child? Or haven’t you learnt? Also it would be interesting to see if you live close to water.
For example I have in my head, people are more likely to be able to swim in Florida than in New Mexico, maybe that is just me
