Question :
Our 12 year old daughter wants to learn to dive very much! She is quite bright and mature for her age but is somewhat small. Should she be allowed to take lessons and if not, what would be an appropriate age for her?

Answer :
There are several factors that you must consider:

1. Ability to understand the physics involved in scuba diving.
2. Maturity to accept responsibility for her actions and her buddy.
3. Physical ability to learn the skills required.
4. Strength to manage the heavy gear.

There are no studies that have shown any harm done to the growing teenagers bones or any other parts of their bodies.
