I looking for advise on how to get my son swim.
He loves Baths but hates swimming at the pool or creek or anywhere. Yesterday we went to a creek to swim and he screamed the entire time he was in the water. My husband was in the water with him the whole time trying to play with him blowing bubbles, splashing. We laugh with him praise him, clap and make a huge deal if he blows bubbles, but he then just crys and screams when he remembers where he is.
I would love to take him to lessons but i don't want to have to deal with a screaming child when all the other kids are there trying to have a lesson, So i was wondering if anyone had any ideas on how i could get him used to water enough so that i can start to take him to lessons?
