Dad Tip of the Day: Teach and encourage your kids to swim as there are numerous benefits.
Many kids love swimming. It is a great summer activity that allows them to have fun and get their energy out. As parents, we usually enjoy swimming and hanging out with the kids in the pool as it is a good way for us to relax as well.
Some adults turn to swimming for exercise, and that makes sense as it is a good way to work your muscles and get a cardiovascular workout. For kids, the same benefits apply as well, and I found a good article online that discusses the benefits of swimming for kids: https://johnstonhealth.org/2013/05/10-benefits-of-swimming-for-youth/
Something kids can do for the rest of their lives
Provides a challenging and fun way to stay fit
Teaches water safety

My kids are still young, but are learning to swim at one of the local community pools as part of their summer program. The kids are having fun, and it will be great for them in the long run! Here is my wife and kids at swim class:
I enjoy swimming as well, and look forward to lots of fun in the water this summer!
