Why Are Kids Float Suits Good For Teaching Them To Swim
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

I asked myself a question while laying back on a lounger on holiday.What can encourage my kid to be more confident in the water? A good kids float suit which blocks harmful UV rays would be ideal! Its amazing the things that run around your head when you have a lot of time to think.

The reason I thought about this was when my daughter was on the beach, and as all kids do, dragged me into the water with her. Once the water level was above head height the float suit my daughter had on really proved its worth. She was able to swim around freely and in such a way her head was well above water level. It seemed the floating device installed in the kids float suit really work a treat.

After an amazing day at the beach and in the water I could tell my daughter was ready for another go the day after! I convinced her to try the kids club at the hotel which was running a kids club and was offering swimming lessons for kids of all ages. As my daughter was three years old at the time she was a little shy to start with. I reminded her of the fantastic progress he had made the day before ( which had made both mum and dad very proud of her achievement) to which she joined the swimming class.

Keeping a careful eye on her, as she listened to the young guy taking the swimming lesson, I could see she was taking to the lesson expertly.One of the reasons being the kids float suit she had on. It had given her the confidence to kick her legs and make arm movement which most of the kids her age couldn't get let.

Almost all the other kids who didn't have swim suit with floats inserted had water wings or a rubber ring to keep them a float in the pool.These devices seemed to restrict the child's movement and they didn't seem as confident in what they where doing. The total opposite experience my daughter was getting out of the lesson. Job done then I thought a confident kid in the water can only benefit her in the future! Back home, and growing as kids do, both myself and my wife looked on line to find a kids float suit which would encourage her to swim more freely than just staying a float and kicking her legs in the water. We found one more designed a toddler who would be looking to learn how to swim. Like when I was younger you would be given a floating device to hold onto while you kicked your legs and went round the pool in that manner.

The float suit for my little girl was instrumental in her learning to swim . Now she is a great swimmer for her age all thanks to a kids float suit that suited her needs at the time.
