Bathtime can be learn-to-swim time

According to the United States Swim School Association, bathtime is the perfect time for teaching infants and toddlers beginner swimming techniques.

And although a bathtub is smaller than a pool or lake, adults should be supervising children 100 percent of the time, said Sue Mackie, executive director of the United States Swim School Association.

“If kids are taught at a young age how to swim, they have the ability to be active in the water their entire life,” Mackie said. “The water is a great source of activity for kids, and it goes throughout old age.”
