. 12/30/08

Precious moments; they are the ones that give life meaning. After all, life is not measured by how many breaths a person takes, but by the very moments that take your breath away. Having a child is one of these moments. For many of us creating life and seeing it enter the world all squirming and crying its beautiful voice for the first time is always a wonder of the world. You want to do everything in the world to make this child of yours happy and to give him every possible benefit in life. Have you ever thought about baby swimming lessons? No, I am not joking.

Even toddlers have the possibility to start their swimming lessons at a young and early age. Why is this important you may ask. Well I am here to answer that very question. More and more early child consultants are giving baby swimming lessons the thumbs up in this day and age for very, very good reasons. One of these reasons is that early swimming and being in the water helps you to bond your child with an activity and he or she will forever associated in their subconscious. Also, it helps with development and the progress of basic psycho-motor skills. It is also a proven that babies that get into the water at an early age also get the benefit of leaning how to walk earlier than those who do not partake in this activity.

While it can be explained due to an increased amount of activity the baby does in the water and greater physical activity that snowballs into a psychological effect for them to want to start walking. Child psychologists also affirm that many of the fears we have in adulthood also start to form when we are very young and the mind, especially the conscious mind is especially susceptible to experiences which can translate to a life long fear perpetuated by its hidden brother - the subconscious. Here we are discussing about the fear of water, which is said to affect almost 15% of the population of the world and it is an irrational and unnecessary fear that should be nipped at the bud. Introducing your baby to the water or a pool and being with him, holding him, protecting him will create the right mental associations for him to never fear the water.

Fear of the water can be a very socially debilitating and life-threatening ailment in adulthood and even cost him to miss out on many opportunities in life. You should never let this happen, especially to your baby and putting him in the water early means that he will never fear the water. It is also a good way to promote swimming, an activity which promotes a lean body and good overall health. As you can see there are many benefits for you to place your toddler in baby swimming lessons and the sooner you do so, the better. He deserves the chance to experience the next best thing to flight.
