I'm not talking about being scared of swimming. I want to know if some people just can't do it.
My 7 year old son is in swimming lessons now for the umteenth time. He's in private lessons with a woman who came very highly recommended by multiple people. At his last lesson, she sighed and said, "He'll never be on swim team, but I think he'd be able to save himself." After swimming with him this afternoon, i really question that statement. A few years ago, he came home from lessons with a different teacher and proudly annonced, "Miss Eva says I sink like a stone!"
He swims like a seahorse. His feet will not rise up to the surface. Instead of swimming on the top of the water like
he swims like this.
It's pretty pathetic.
He is a scrawny kid---not alot of muscle or fat on him. He has absolutely NO fear of water.
I was so jealous of the moms sitting by the side of the pool reading a book and occasionally glancing up at their fully competent swimming children!
