Parenting & Swim-Teams
August 3, 2018 Adrienne Brown 0 Comments
You can accomplish a lot of your parenting goals letting your kids participate on swim teams! Yeah really, parenting & swim-teams can go together!
My kids have been on many swim-teams throughout the years of us parenting them, and I have noticed many common character building aspects. On every team these
characteristics were present in all of them. but I want to point out at least 3 in particular!
With every team that I have allowed my children to participated in, all have instilled perseverance. No matter what level my children were at when starting out, they developed perseverance!
This is a necessary characteristic for all human beings. It carries over to so many areas in their lives!
Another character building aspect!
I watched each of my children go from not being sure about their ability to stay above water, to flip turning on the wall at lightning speed. They went from standing in a frozen state, scared to mess up, to leaping from the diving board into 12 feet of water! Now that’s awesome! That’s self-confidence.
