One of the main things I wanted Amelia to learn this summer was to swim.
She can hold her breath under water, float, and pretty much swim but she is afraid to do it in water where she can’t touch the ground. I have tried to get her to overcome this fear but then back off because I don’t want to push her. She loves the water and I am confident in an emergency situation she could at least float and kick herself to safety.
Besides, now she has something to work towards and maybe next summer she will get over her fear of the deep end.
When did your kids learn to swim?
