My son was terrified of swimming even though he passed stage one, we paid for stage 2 lessons and the instructor frightened him by wanting him to dive in the little pool, so he had 2 more lessons and said he didnt want anymore.
so for the last 2 months my hubby's been taking him every Sunday and today he used the water slide by himself about 20 times..lol this opens/lands in the deep pool.
then he decided he wanted to dive in and hubby catch him so they did that and then next thing we knew he was off running and dive in with his legs tucked up under him shouting cannon ball!!! never seen my hubby move so fast in all my life..LOL
Lucky the pool was empty and the lifeguard thought it was funny..lol

so from a lad who was terrified him now want lessons again.
thought i'd share cos im so happy with him..lol

One of the nicest memories I have with my now 15 yr old and taking her swimming right from a tiny baby, we had the pool to ourselves one morning and she'd been swimming around at literally six weeks of age ( natural water baby! ) and I sat with her in the water, the waves bouncing against my chest as I was breastfeeding in the empty pool and just the lifeguard came up and asked how old she was and squatted and chatted to me while my daughter drank her lunch and then slept relaxing in the water... it was lovely xxx

That's great. Swimming is fab, and could save his life one day. Brave guy, you should be proud he persevered and didn't give up - and proud in yourselves you stuck to it too, it's hard to when children don't enjoy something to still make/encourage them to still do it.
