How old, and what are the circumstances (like do you have a pool/lake on your property/ do you live somewhere that you can swim more than just in the summer.)
Just wondering. my son is 4. swim very well with water wings but he is so attached to them. i just signed him up for a preschool swim class at the local rec center to help him get over the water wing obsession he has going. he is fearless with them - jumping in, swimming around etc....

Like me they have always known how to swim to some extent. I was a life guard and swim instructor. As toddlers they could kick their feet, move their arms, keep their head above water, and make it across a small pool. My grandson is 20 mo and he is learning now. I don't believe in water wings. If a kid need something to wear to hold them up it should be a PFD.
The problem is he is fearless with those water wings. That's wrong. He should only do the things he can do with them off. Now he has to relearn everything. That means changing brain pathways and that's harder than doing it right in the first place. A parent can teach a child how to swim. There is info online on how to do it and how to do the different strokes. Classes may be fun.
