Swim Lessons, the bane of my existence!
My four year old keeps reminding me to sign him back up for swim lessons. I must remember to do that because I did say to him a while ago when he didn't want to go to swim lessons that he would not be able to go on our boat during the summer months without having lessons. So he is listening.
Oh Swim Lessons what shall we do. A year or so ago we were paying for swim lessons at a reputable gym. They were not private lessons but group lessons. It wasn't that he was shy with other kiddos but he had two negative experiences (which I was not happy about and complained). The first experience was that after a few lessons with the same instructor the instructor was assigned to a different class (also going on at the same time different part of the pool) and the new instructor picked him up and put him in the water screaming. Um okay, my son takes a minute to warm up to strangers and that was not okay. Now he might be afraid of the water. The second experience was that the instructors changed on a daily basis.
I am looking into both private and group lessons again and will be making my decision shortly. I know one thing, we have got to learn how to swim!
