Rhys has been going to swimming lessons for about a year now at a local swim school.
He still has a way to go before I’ll feel confident letting him swim independently but he’s really getting there. And most importantly for me, he’s got a lot of confidence in the water now.
And he’s having fun!
We’ve recently changed his lesson to a Sunday lunchtime session, and I think it was a really good decision.
He used to go on a Tuesday after school and I think he’s much less tired now going on a Sunday. And when he’s not so tired, his concentration is better. So he’s already getting a bit more out of each lesson which is great.
We’ve been trying to help him at home by getting him to put his head underwater in the bath, and holding his breath for as long as possible.
Which is making bathtime pretty fun for him!
Parents, do your children practice swimming skills in the bath too, or is it just us?! Leave me a comment and let me know!
