Baby in the pool

Baby in the pool

My uncle sent me a video to this video promoting a program called Infant Swimming Resource. It teaches infants and toddlers how to swim and float while fully clothed so that they can save themselves if they fall in a pool, at least until an adult comes to save them.

I think this may be a good idea for some families, but I have to admit that my gut was twisting while watching the video. Undoubtedly the parents were very close by, yet it’s hard to see a child in distress like that. Of course, it’s a happy ending and the video is effective in (a) reminding me of this danger and (b) showing me that there’s an effective solution.

Watch it, and then imagine how they had to restrain the mom. smile
