Slipping into the crystal-clear pool, enveloped by the calm of the water, mind and body relaxed, the swimmer slowly releases the cares and worries of the day. This is the image of swimming for millions as a proliferation on public, private and club pools dots the nation.In keeping with this vogue of swimming as a prime source of recreation, instructions have been given at a very early age - to toddlers and infants. But what about these children? Will they be safe? Will they master the necessary survival skills of swimming? Will parents have "drown proof" children embracing the joys of swimming?Linda Bolgers book, Dunk You Donuts, Not Your Children, addresses these concerns as well as the controversial forced submersion theory of swimming instruction. The book draws upon her vast experiences as a lifeguard and water safety instructor, teacher, and interested parent of four children.In this carefully researched study, consideration is given to the child overcoming his or her fear of water through natural, pleasurable water adjustment techniques and activities that can be employed by trained personnel and supportive parents.The key to water adaptation for the very young is dependent on the realization that the physical, emotional, and social well-being of the child must be paramount.Mrs. Bolgers book is a thoughtful invitation for water safety instructors, pool managers, physical education teachers, and caring parents to share the pleasures of swimming with the early-age child.
