Swimming: how to make a baby feel confident?

The first time your child touches the water, nothing guarantees that it will be crazy love. Fortunately, it is possible to help him feel good by following these simple tips.

  1. Let children make their own decisions By asking him questions like "do you prefer X or Y?", you show him that you trust him.

  2. Be confident in yourself Children are emotional sponges. If you step into the water with confidence, your baby will tend to do the same.

  3. Encourage play Children learn faster through play than through strict lessons. Lead by example by diving into the water and having fun.

  4. Allow them to learn from their mistakes Avoid dramatizing mistakes. Instead, show him that they help him become better.

  5. Help them set goals Push them to give themselves challenges and to meet them.

  6. Encourage your child Be your baby's #1 supporter. Applaud him, congratulate him, push him forward.

  7. Praise perseverance Keep track of your child's progress to show them when they want to give up.
