I learned to swim not immediately. While swimming and went to special sections. But I do not remember why, she began to swim by the age of 9. And suddenly and independently.
My parents and I rested on the sea and were on a boat trip. And on one berth, for some reason, the yacht could not sail straight to the shore.
Therefore, to get to it, it was possible only in one way – you had to swim by yourself. And the wings for me did not take. There was only an underwater mask. Yes, and I myself refused the saving vest – I did not love them.
First independent swimming
Under the water, by the way, I swam very well. And so, at that very moment, I myself wanted to learn how to swim. I took the mask and began, as I could wallow in the water, when I felt that I could not and do not have enough strength, went under the water.
So I got to the shore and was very pleased with myself. Here is a story about how I learned to swim.
Son of three, but he categorically does not like wings or vest. And all the while asking to swim without aids.
Of course, I can’t say that he swims straight, but floundering in the water with support is very good. He loves to swim very much and if he sees a water source, he does not leave it for hours. Absolutely not afraid of water.
At the age of 4, I want to give him a voyage, and I think there will be no problems. The son will swim very well. So as he has.
I also think that swimming is a very good and useful sport that is necessary for health. And what is the figure of the swimmers? Tight body, shoulders are developed, in my opinion an ideal figure for boys.
Girl swimmers do not really like me. For general development you can swim, but not as a sport. It seems to me that it spoils the feminine figure.
Many, however, are afraid of water and swim only near the shore, at best.
I have one friend who is already 55 years old, and she is still afraid to swim.
She was taught, explained, she did. She feels the bottom under her feet is good, but only depth appears – she is panicked and she cannot control herself.
Another friend, on the contrary, only at 30 learned to swim. Before that, she was afraid to go into the water. I also have friends — excellent swimmers who cannot imagine their life without swimming.
And how do your children swim, and how do you think – is it difficult to learn how to swim?
