First, I would just like to thank all of you for your support, understanding and help.
I have a 5 year old son who I recently started to take swimming. For the most part, he cannot stand still in the pool. He really likes it and stays with the teacher but he seems excited. He also seems more difficult the last few days. He doesn't want to listen. Can the chlorine affect him? I had a friend who said her son was affected by it (he has PDD-NOS as well). I would like to add that my son seemed fine after he got out of the pool and home, am I overreacting or just expecting too much from a 5 year old? Thank you! Have a wonderful day everyone!
