Published February 21, 2020

Rumble / Babies & KidsDo you like to see how children demonstrate their talent from an early age? This girl has just finished her swimming lessons in a 32-foot long pool in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. Thanks to the love of this girl for swimming, she first learned to turn around and float so she could save herself if by a stroke of bad luck she fell into a pool by accident. But the enthusiasm of the girl is very great, so she continued with her swimming lessons, but the really funny thing is that the girl learned to swim through the pool with great ease and energy. As you can see in the video, his favorite ability is to dive to the bottom and swim like a mermaid. This girl has a lot of talent!

This talented girl moves through the water with ease, relaxed and having fun. Swimming is the only sport that a child can learn that also gives him the valuable ability to save his own life in case of an accident. Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death in children aged 1 to 4 years, so it is very important that all children be taught to turn around and float on water. Swimming lessons save lives!

Numerous specialists advise swimming for babies as an enriching activity for their physical, psychic and emotional development. The newborn, thanks to his recent experiences in the aqueous environment of the mother's womb, has a series of reflexes that will facilitate its rapid adaptation to water. Over the months you will lose these reflexes if you do not exercise them and possibly develop feelings of distrust and fear.

When they are very young, children usually get acquainted immediately with water, open their eyes without fear, hold their breath and move spontaneously. Babies under one year adapt faster than older, since after 8/9 months they lose some innate reflexes if they do not exercise, such as disorganized kicking or glottis closure, and will develop feelings of distrust and fears towards the water, which will hinder in many cases the learning of swimming.

Swimming offers possibilities of movement that are not on the mainland, so it offers a series of benefits at an organic, intellectual, emotional and social level. It expands the capacity of the respiratory system, regulates blood circulation, develops a proportionate musculature that allows more and more harmonious postures and movements (balance), stimulates the immune system and channels the remaining energies, achieving a more relaxed attitude.

It not only encourages the mastery of the body but its knowledge and the formation of an adequate body image. It also favors language development, since children are naming and learning to gradually explain what they do and what they feel. Water also stimulates the child's ability and spirit of play, which will have a positive impact on future learning.

It is also one of the first proposals at the social level: children, parents, and monitors meet again every week to participate in the same project and share time and space. In addition, the gradual mastery of this medium is giving the child security and independence that will transcend to other areas and will help them acquire a knowledge of their possibilities and limitations. And finally, the most important benefit: the joy and pleasure that this activity provides (if approached properly).

This little swimmer has just completed her swim lessons in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. She first learned how to roll over and float so that she could save herself if she fell into a pool by accident. Then she continued lessons to learn how to swim across the pool (32 feet long) all by herself. As you can see from the video, her favorite skill is diving down to the bottom and swimming around like a mermaid.

She moves through the water with ease, relaxed and enjoying herself. Swimming is the only sport that a child can learn that also gives them the valuable skill of being able to save their own life if an accident occurs. Drowning is the leading cause of accidental death in children ages 1 - 4 so it's very important that all children are taught how to roll over and float in the water. Swim lessons save lives!
