What if my child is scared or crying?

Posted by:

If your child is nervous or crying, please take a moment to chat with the instructor and then let him/her work with your child. Some children may suffer from separation anxiety, and this will go away as soon as the child gets to know and trust the instructor. A fear of new places may also cause a few tears, and this will also go away with time. Being afraid of the water is not uncommon in younger beginners, but the instructor will compassionately help your child adjust to the water through games and basic skills such as blowing bubbles, songs, and water toys. With time, your child will be happy and successful in the water. Please be patient and allow the instructor and staff to work their magic with your child! The best thing for your child is to continue coming to lessons and interact with the instructor and other students.
