VIDEO footage of a swimming instructor teaching a baby how to float in water has gone viral – and her method may be the reason why.


The video was shared by Roxanne Turner from Perth, Australia on her Facebook to raise awareness for swim safety.

In the clip her son Max, nine months old, can be seen mid-session with a swimming instructor at Kids Aquatic Survival School in Quinn Rocks, Western Australia.

Swimming instructor Daria is teaching Max how to float in water, but her method may seem out of the ordinary for some people.

Daria holds Max upside down before letting him go into the water – his head breaking the surface first.

Max struggles for a few seconds but he soon flips himself over onto his back and floats gently in the pool.

While the video may appear terrifying for some, Roxanne explained its importance.

She told Daily Mail Australia: “I can see how it gets pinholed as confronting. It looks like that, particularly if you only see that ten second clip.

“But you can’t see the psychological aspects to it – Lax attended the survival swim school from Monday to Friday everyday for ten minutes over and eight-week period to learn how to float in that way.

“Traditional swimming lessons tech your child that there is an edge to hold onto and arms to reach but for, but what happens when there isn’t an edge and they can’t find the side?”

The survival school offers children like Max the opportunity to navigate water, not yet having the cognitive functions to assess varied situations.

Kids aquatic survival schools which teach these methods are currently only available in Australia.

Many mothers come under criticism for how they take care of their children.

Back in October, one mother was shamed after an image of her baby lying on an airport floor went viral.

The photo was taken by a man who saw the mother and her baby in Colorado Airport, US.

Molly Lensing was captured sitting in an airport seat on her phone.

Her daughter, then two month old Anastasia, was lying on a blanket on the floor in front of her mum.

The photo quickly went viral after being shared online, but Molly hit back at the criticism she received, instead sharing her very different side of the story.
