Little to No Exposure to Water - No Problem

If you are exposing your child to water for the first time at two plus years of age, don't worry

As long as you proceed at your child's pace and include plenty of opportunities to explore their boundaries and limitations within your practice sessions, your child will be happy to participate in your game plan.

And keep in mind, stranger anxiety generally peaks between 12 and 15 months of age, and may continue in some children up to their second birthday. So when practicing skills that require another adult, make sure that your child is familiar with that person.
