This video is remarkable and concerning at the same time. There is no question that seeing a baby floating on it's own is amazing. That said you have to wonder how they teach these babies to do this.

I have seen these videos before and they always seem to show the finished "product." They rarely show the steps that were taken to get to where they are. I have talked with people that have observed these lessons (I have not seen them in person)and they describe torture like techniques, including dunking the kids underwater many times in a single lesson. Personally, I think these measures are extreme. Furthermore they do not replace parental supervision. So for me the best safeguard is still to watch your kids.

Here is a news story that shows the debate that is ongoing regarding these lessons.



I would be curious to hear what others think of this program or if anyone has witnessed it first hand.
