Water is an element that attracts or causes rejection in equal parts in children. The attraction for water brings many families head-on. The parents of these children can barely be a minute relaxed because they must get up constantly to go after their little one, whose address is always the same, the sea water or the pool. However, other children are afraid of water.
Water is an unknown medium for children and babies
That's right, on the other side of the coin are children afraid of water que, who do not want to go into the sea or in the pool, who do not want to see the water neither in painting, much less up close, and this attitude so childish can also ruin many vacations. In fact, the bottom line is the insecurity that children feel before the aquatic environment that is unknown to them. It is usually more common when it is the first time that children come into contact with water, but it also happens if children do not go to the beach or the pool for more than a year and do not remember the last time they were there.To prevent your children from throwing a tantrum because they do not want to get into the water, be patient and help them adapt. How? First, little by little. The adaptation must be gradual so that the water is pleasant to your baby. Your hands should be your first touch, you will notice their softness, the temperature difference and they will enjoy playing with the water. Then invite him to get his feet and legs wet, and pour water over his head.
Sitting on the edge of the pool you can play splashing with your feet and on the beach to run along the shore. Once the child has become familiar with the water and has lost the initial fear, try to get into the water with him. At the beginning, the water should cover your legs nothing more. For this phase, it is advisable to use a children's pool or the first area of the shore when there are no waves so that the baby can sit and stand up as often as he wants and see how the water reaches his chest.
A little later and depending on your safety, bathe with it and float on the water. You will feel as your baby clings to you like a limpet, curls around your waist and neck, the first days. However, you will see how little by little it is letting go as the loss of fear helps you loose your muscles and the whole family can enjoy some great days of rest with the refreshing sensation of daily bathing.
