Children and adults are often separated when it comes in swimming inside any swimming pools in hotels and places other than hotels. In many cases in the swimming pools’ rules found all over the world, children are those aged between 5 to 12 years old.
This is because children have lesser abilities to sustain with the depth of swimming pools. They also have smaller lungs and internal lung parts compared to adults, resulting their higher risks of drowning or injuries when swimming when compared to adults.
This is also a reason of why swimming pools for children have smaller overall sizes as well as more shallow depths than adult swimming pools.
Since the swimming pools are smaller, more shallow, and children’s general physique sizes that are way smaller than adults, children often pay half lesser swimming pool ticket fees than their adult counterparts. In some cases, infants even don’t pay at all.
At the same time, this doesn’t mean children and adults can’t swim together. Children who want to hone their swimming capabilities can swim with the adults who are willing to teach them how to swim. This is done under a condition that the adults supervise the children swimming with them.
By “supervision”, this means the adults should not only stop in accompanying the children or watch them from afar. Always be at their backs no matter what. Their delicate body bones as well as unstable and underdeveloped movements make it easy for children to slip back and get injured even if they have buoys and swimming equipment and gears with them.
The laws when it comes to swimming pools also tend to put adults in cases when children are in harmful conditions while they’re swimming. For example, adults are guilty of withdrawing their attentions from children when they intentionally leave the children with alibis of “watching them from apart”. Such guilt behaviors can make adults end up jailed. Instead of having fun experiences with children, they end up having greater problems on their sides.
