Does anyone have any suggestions for my little Isaac who is terrified of the swimming pool? He loves his bath, but then when we get into the pool he is stuck to me like velcro and whimpers the whole time. I don't know how to make him feel safe. He has never had an accident or anything the should make him scared. Please help!

my son has the opposite problem, he's terrified of baths and loves being in water outside! the best advice i can give is to not force him to go into the pool, if u show him how much fun the pool can be his curiosity will make him want to go in, in his own time
