SWIMMING is an essential survival skill period. I believe in this one too. I can float and swim but not in deep waters, I panic when I can no longer reach the floor. My husband too knows how to float and swim a bit but easily panics when water level becomes too deep. That is why we discussed even before we had our child that SWIMMING LESSONS is a must for our future kids.

About 3 years ago, Bert Lozada Swim School (BLSS) had a media event and invited us to introduce swimming to our then almost a year-old baby. This year now that he is 4, another event invite for BLSS came to my inbox and I was thrilled to once again be part of it. This time we will take swimming lessons for our little boy seriously, because this is an important skill, so mommies and daddies enroll your kids while they are young so they will be more confident in water.
