Mixed Swimming for Child

Hi,
Can my 4 year old go swimming and take swimming lessons with ladies?
Thanks.

Answer:

Although some are stringent in this matter, a four-year-old will not strictly speaking come under the principles of Chinuch for this matter, and one can be lenient.

Please see here for further details. There are no hard-and-fast rules in the matter, but it is correct to be stringent from the age of six or seven, when a child can better understand the concept of gender separation and modesty.

Best wishes.
