At only 16 months old, a child who has not yet really learned walking, able to swim without help, and feels in water is absolutely comfortable. Fearless baby swims face down, turning on his back to rest, and take air in lungs. In water, the child is without sleeves, and at the same time able to swim to the far side of the pool without outsiders help, and even without respite. However this wonderful feat collected a lot of negative reviews from viewers on YouTube. IN in particular, people are concerned that the child is forced to swim, despite being tired, and obviously does not want to do this.
Responding to comments, the father of the child who posted the video on video hosting, explains that he is qualified medical workers, and his wife worked for six years in the coast guard and taught swimming. He writes that the child on the video is their daughter, whose name is Elizabeth. The girl was properly trained certified instructor. “We are by no means forcing her daughter to do what she does not want. We are able to see signs of child fatigue in the pool. Elizabeth is very decisive girl. Sometimes she flips over to gain air like her taught, and sometimes overcomes a distance in one breath, “- he clarifies. Adam recommends that all parents teach their children swim from early childhood so that children can hold their breath and stay on the water.
Parents warn: “Please! No need to throw the child in water and expect him to swim. It is very dangerous and can injure him. A kid can get scared of water, and it will take years, just to get closer to the pool, not to mention learn to swim. When training infants and children with instructors specialized training methods are used. “After parents explained what is really happening on the video, the number of positive reviews has increased significantly. Most commentators admire the girl and prophesy her future stars Olympic pools.
