Then our swim school took a 4 week break over Xmas. He is now back to square one of refusing to even get in the pool and getting upset before every lesson. This is the second week in a row he has refused to get in despite all the coaxing from me and the instructor, he won't even sit on the edge and watch.
I am in two minds, if this was your child would you keep perservering in taking him and trying to get him in(meanwhile having to pay for lessons while he won't even get in the pool) or cancel his lessons for the time being but still bringing him along to sit on the side for his little brother's lessons and wait till he is ready to go back in the pool? I should add he will get in our backyard pool at home with us so its only at swimming lessons he won't get in. Thanks for listening
