Little to No Exposure to Water - No Problem

If you are exposing your child to water for the first time at 3 1/2 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.
