As a kid, I always feared water. When I was about 10, I fell into a waterfall that was too high for my height and was rescued by the nearby village farmers when I was swept away by the force of water. I guess I attracted that event into my life. However, it was after that accident that I decided to learn swimming and I’m now a regular swimmer. Today, I have a three year old girl. She’s an extremely gorgeous toddler. Last month, I decided to get into water with her. At first, she never gave in and hated the sight of water but sooner, she got accustomed to it and now in about three weeks, enjoys playing in water.
I have always believed and read pretty often too that swimming helps in the overall development of a toddler. Their body and mind coordination, emotional and physical growth and overall outlook get affected by swimming in a positive way. My 3 year old loves to drink her favorite chocolate milk shake after swimming. I bought a wheatgrass juicer recently and make sure she gets a good drink after an hour of swimming. However, you must always be careful with toddlers in water. There is no way you can move away from them no matter how much you may feel they can swim on their own. Statistics say that most toddler deaths occur due to parent or guardian negligence. It is important to always have an eye on them and their surroundings.
Swimming also is a great form of exercise because it keeps the kids healthy and fit. Many kids around the world are victims of obesity and diabetes. Swimming is the best way to keep these problems at bay. Swimming also helps toddlers exercise without getting hurt. If you have got a toddler at home, get the champion into water!
