Children Should Learn To Swim Before They Can Walk
One of our moms here at Flourish Media was recently featured in CBSMiami’s latest post about why children should learn how to swim before they can walk to avoid drowning.
According to CBS Miami, in South Florida, swim season is year round. Unfortunately, for too many children, a good time can turn tragic. Drowning is a leading cause of death for children ages one to four.
That’s why The American Academy of Pediatrics now says children should learn to swim before they can even walk.
“We’re always watching them, but what happens if I turn around one minute? It could be really dangerous,” says Flourish Media mom: Nicole Guerrero.
She says she wanted to start her children at a young age.
“If my son has the skills or my daughter has the skills, I am not worried anymore,” she explained.
