Fear of water is common among the kids. However, by following certain practices, you can easily help your child overcome the phobia of water.
1. Have a wading pool in your backyard: If your kid is scared to enter in large water bodies, such as big swimming pools or lakes, set up a wading swimming pool in your backyard. Fill it with water, and encourage your child and other kids in the neighborhood to enter in it and play.
2. Introduce water toys: Get entertaining, colorful water toys and place them in the water-filled wading pool for your child to play with them. Make it fun!
3. Reassure your kid of his safety: Tell your child repeatedly that he is safe in water and need not worry.
4. Provide water aids: Give your child water aids, such as water wings and life jackets that will ensure your kid his safety.
