Teach your kids to swim. You are putting them at risk and doing them at disservice by not doing it.
You're right. If not for safety it's the best exercise.
I swam distance events in college and still swim daily. I love it and most children do if you begin young enough and don't frighten them.
TOO MANY DROWN due to Moms and Pops ignorance about getting the kids lessons beginning at age 2.
