4. Safety First

This one sounds like a no-brainer but you would not believe how many parents do not think about the dangerous things that could potentially occur when teaching your child how to swim if you are careless.

Always make sure you take all the precautions necessary, including making sure you have plenty of space in the pool or ocean, making sure your child stays hydrated and, most importantly, healthy. Plan for a day with good weather and remember to be aware of the dangers of drowning, broken bones and cracked skulls. Knowing standard CPR or having someone close by who does is definitely helpful.
