Can your child swim? How old are they and did they have lessons?

Yes he can. He started lessons at 4. At 8 he could do swim meets & was able to do everything fully.

That's great. W had our first lesson at 2 and it didn't go well, so we waited a bit longer.

Dh is teaching the kiddos. Lexi has no fear of water so it's been easier with her than Landon. Dh was always gone on rotations when Landon was itty bitty and bein that I'm not a great swimmer, Landon didn't start learning until later.

All ours except the 5 day old can swim. They can usually fully swim above and below the water by 15-18 months. We have pools and they are in the water from an early age.

my dd is 8 and, yes, she can swim. no lessons. i just coached her. but we have a pool in our apartment complex, so it was easy to teach her.

Yes. They are 12 and 6. My 12 yr. old isn't a very strong swimmer and took lessons for 4 summers. He's just not athletic in general. My 6 yr. old is a fish.....a natural swimmer like me (I was a competitive swimmer from age 6 through high school). No lessons for her. She just started trying to let go and swim on her own when she was 3 and I've worked with her some to learn different strokes (free and breast stroke mainly).
