Swimming is believed to be the perfect and healthiest exercise for adults and even for kids. Besides brings a good effect to body, swimming also brings a good effect to mind since it can relax the mind and can get rid of tension and anxiety. Because of these reasons, swim lessons are very important to be taught to your children.

Swimming lessons is not that hard only if you combine a right approach which is by combining support and patience with a simple lesson plan. There is no need for you be a certified swim instructor to teach your kids the basic things of swimming therefore you only need to know the basic things in order to help you encourage your children to experience comfortable feelings in the water.

The first important thing that you need to do is making your child feels comfortable in the aquatic environment by holding your child below the armpits and walk with him in the water. After that, keep your hands below his armpits and ask your child to kick his legs in order to develop his movement in the water and you can use a kickboard if you teach your older child. Then to make your child familiar with the water, you need to ask him to put his face in the water and ask him to blow bubbles. You also can play some underwater games with him in order to get him open his eyes. Besides open eyes, you also need to teach the technique of holding breath underwater. Then hold your child around his chest or waist and guide his arms. Teach him some strokes and how to float. After that let your child swims in a very short distance and then progressively increase the distance. Your child need to keep practice swimming because swimming is learned not only by one single practice but also by a lot of practice.
