“Swimmies” are an amazing invention. They let toddlers play safely by the water, and even enjoy themselves, without you having to watch them like a hawk.
But a 35-year-old who wears swimmies in the pool? That’s just ridiculous.
That’s because the point of swimmies is to protect your toddler while s/he makes the transition to actually swimming. The hope being, of course, that by age 4 or 5 your toddler has total freedom to move safely in the water and have fun doing it!
Just like swimmies aren’t forever, neither is a total media lockdown to protect your kids from viewing unsavory things on TV or the Internet. There’s a place for protection, of course! But just like swimmies help you make the transition to swimming, you should be using tools and techniques to help your kids make the transition to responsible, healthy enjoyment of movies, TV, and apps.
