Parent-child swimming is an aquatic exercise program in which parents swim with their children to enhance their relationship. Originating in the 1960s, it is based on the traditional infant swimming exercise, with the added element of communication and interaction between parents and children. Parent-child swimming can not only exercise to the physical fitness of infants and young children, but also promote the emotion between parents and children, parents have more time to participate in the growth of children. Parent-child swimming in China started late and is still in the initial development stage. By investigating some parent-child swimming training institutions in Xi'an, we analyze the status quo of parent-child swimming teaching at the present stage and make suggestions on its existing problems, so as to provide a theoretical basis for future investigators and researchers in this area as well as to provide suggestions for improving the standardization of parent-child swimming in Xi'an.
