5. Breathing Exercises

One of the first steps to go through when teaching your child how to swim is making sure they know how to breathe underwater. The best way to go about this is through the traditional counting method. Basically watch your child “blow bubbles” underwater and count to five as they hold on to you or the pool wall. Mastering this technique is crucial before moving on; the last thing you would want to happen is to see your child potentially suffocate themselves while trying to swim because they could not figure out how to breathe underwater correctly.
