Being an instructor at SafeSplash we know that a healthy body and mind are key to success! When I'm not training my body you can find me with my nose in a book. There are so many books that I will be reading throughout the year. I have the goal of reading 150 books by the end of the year and so far I’m at 50. Here are the next top five on my to-do list!
Soccer, baseball/softball, dance, football, lacrosse, basketball, and gymnastics are all familiar activities for kids. Moms spend countless hours scheduling and chauffeuring their children to all of these activities leaving little time for anything else. However, finding time to add a swim class to your child’s schedule is beneficial to his/her health and well-being.
A swim class is a quick and enjoyable 30-minute activity once a week that allows parents to relax poolside and watch as their children learn valuable life-saving skills. Learning to be safe in and around the water is the obvious reason to take swim lessons, but there are other valuable benefits as well.
Have a child that can’t read enough about weird creatures in the ocean? Want a sweet read to encourage your nervous child before he or she begins swim lessons? We’ve rounded up the top five books that SafeSplash swimmers in Los Angeles and Orange County California are recommending this summer.
“I never lose; I either win or I learn.”
For many moms and dads, “competition" is thought to be a dirty word. They argue, not only does it place too much pressure on kiddos to be the best, but it also causes unnecessary stress leaving them feeling discouraged if they don't win.
So, to shield their kiddos from disappointment, many well-intentioned parents avoid competition for their kiddos altogether.
For many other moms and dads, competition is thought to be an unavoidable part of life. They argue that learning to operate in a competitive environment is a valuable skill.
So, to prepare their kiddos for the challenges they will face in adulthood, these parents encourage their kiddos to participate in sports and other competitive activities.
Spring Break is just around the corner, now's the time to start planning a fun, family vacation. Spring break often consists of trips to Disney Land, a beach vacation or visiting family. Unfortunately, Las Vegas is seldom included on the list of family friendly vacation spots what with it's predominately adult attractions. Over the years I have found that there are a lot of great options for a family get away off the strip. Check out these kid friendly ideas and start packing!
