Swim lessons will significantly lower the chances of a child drowning.

TRUE          FALSE

That is incorrect.

Answer: FALSE

Although swim lessons can have value and teach children to obey rules and learn to swim, there is no correlation that proves drowning risk is reduced. In fact, the American Pediatric Association has recently advised against swim lessons for very young children. Some parents can develop a false sense of security that swim lessons will safeguard their children.
