With your little swimmer, set the expectation for your child early on that when they are in the water you are too. ⠀
⠀
They should understand that “swim time” is fun because their parent/guardian is with them. ⠀
It is very important for them to feel confident that they are never alone in the water or that their grown-up is distracted or off to the side.⠀
⠀
If you cannot provide 1:1 supervision and be in the water with your child then make it a sprinkler day. ⠀
