DS had his first swim class yesterday. I would not call it a fail, but it wasn't quite a success either. He cried the entire time. We were able to stay in the water the whole time with the class but we weren't able to do any of the little activities they were doing because he just wanted to cling on tight to me. I felt so bad for him.
I was a little surprised by his reaction. He's definitely cautious in new situations, but usually gets into things fairly quickly. I expected him to cling on at fist and then love to splash the water. We're going to try again next weekend so I'm hoping it will get better each class. Anyone else's LO have this reaction to being in the water for the first time? Any tips?
