"Claire Elson taught both my children to swim when they were 2 1/2 years and 18 months old respectively. They became safe, confident fearless swimmers. Her teaching gave them a sense of self assurance that they still have. I am deeply impressed both as a mother and a pediatrician by Claire's empathetic, caring teaching methods and her focus in water safety technique." -- Dr. Elizabeth H. Brown, MD F.A.A.P.

"Finally, a step-by-step video is now available that clearly illustrates how to teach your child to swim in seven days. The greatest thing about this video is the parent is the teacher!..... This video is a must. As a mother of two preschoolers I can't wait to take these tips to the pool this summer!" -- Jennifer Swain, All About Kids

"I have found the video "Teaching Preschoolers to Swim in Seven Days" to be an extremely effective tool in teaching young children the basic fundamentals to be self sufficient in the water. The three step week-long program as outlined in the video has afforded me the basic skills and techniques to effectively teach swim lessons and fundamental water safety to my own two preschoolers. I highly recommend the video to any parent, grand parent, or guardian in the pursuit of family water safety." -- Dr. Geoff Van Flandern, Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon, New England Baptist Hospital

As seen on ABC Television 'Smart Woman' with Carol Williams: "If you're a smart parent, it's time to make sure your kids are safe around the pool... A backyard or neighborhood pool can be tremendous fun for a child, but it can also be a dangerous... More than 1,000 children drown in the United States every year, It happens quickly with no cry for help. 77% of children who drown are missing less than 5 minutes, before their absence is noticed. You can be your child's first swimming teacher. Elson who's pregnant with her third child has taught 4 year old Nora and 2 year old Kate and she's produced a video to help other parents do the same with their kids." -- Carol Williams, WCPO-TV

From the Contributor:

Claire Elson, a Certified Water Safety Instructor, developed this three-step, week-long program. "I designed the lessons to be fun for both the student and the teacher," says Elson, who also holds a master's degree in education. "They are unique and easy to learn."

This video explains three 30-minute lessons named to amuse and delight your child. "Motorboats, Bubbles and Ice Cream Scoops" is the title of lesson II. "Even very young children can be taught rudimentary water safety through repetition and proper pool habits."

"Each lesson is designed to be completed in 30-minutes or less," says Elson, the mother of two preschoolers. "They can be repeated on consecutive or alternative days, depending upon the student's swimming ability."

"Parents need not feel intimidated by the idea of teaching their own child. There are basic techniques that can be taught to all children at a young age." There are many benefits to this video over enrolling your child in traditional swimming classes. At the very least it serves as an excellent supplement. The cost of the video is less than the cost of a single lesson.

"In addition, the one-on-one time spent with your child is so rewarding," says Elson. "Your child will be much more relaxed and confident with a parent than an unfamiliar teacher."
