Kids learn by playing. The more you can make learning to swim fun for your kids, the more they’ll like it, the quicker they’ll learn, and the more fun you’ll have teaching them. It’s critical to your kids’ safety that they learn how to get out of the pool by themselves. Practicing in this fun way will help your kids get comfortable with this essential swimming skill.
Have your child experiment with using his feet to walk along the wall and help his hands. Can he lift them up so they’re close to his hands? Can he stretch them down so he’s flat against the wall and only his toes are helping?
