Outrage: Parents Teach Baby To Swim Across Pool, Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"In a viral YouTube video, a 16-month-old baby girl swims across a pool without the help of floatation devices or adults -- just the sound of her father`s voice encouraging her."



I hope this viral video doesn`t inspire any witless parents to try to teach their babies  how to swim. Any human being who can`t control his bowel movements has no business trying to learn  how to swim.

This is a unique situation: Elizabeth`s parents are professionally trained in CPR and water safety. He`s a nurse and his wife is a lifeguard, and the baby was taught by "infant swim instructors." But I still think they are fruitcakes for teaching their baby how to swim.

Teaching a baby not to eat his own crap makes sense. Teaching an infant to swim makes no sense whatsoever.

The most amazing part of this story is that there are actually "infant swim instructors." If there`s a God in heaven above, these "infant swim instructors" should be forced to swim the length of a pool while outraged citizens are shooting at them with double-barreled shotguns.
