Got an Answer?
My son is 7 and terrified of water. He knows how to float in his own and do basic freestyle but it's a struggle. Some kids love to swim and it comes easy. Others, like mine, aren't great swimmers. Theres no age, just encourage them and they will get there. :)
My kids 5 and still cant. Has been in lessons for years. He just loses it in the water.
20 months and 2.5. Mermaids from their first bath.
My daughter was able to swim short distances (3- 5 metres) at 10 months. She was in swimming lessons from 12 weeks old.
And I don't think she was doing 5 meters till she was about 16/18 months.
My oldest is 5.5yo and is has just learnt to swim by himself but he's been doing lessons since about 2yo. Fear of the water held him back from swimming by himself earlier
Around 3 with casual lessons and one intensive block. My kids aren't weren't/aren't/probably never will be strong swimmers but they're skilled enough to have fun in the water and not drown.
