Should I pull my child out of lessons if he cries?

No. We believe that abruptly removing your child from a lesson with only reinforce any anxieties or fears that they currently have. Some children may simply be suffering from separation anxiety and this will go away as soon as the child gets to know and trusts the instructor. As any new activity, anxiety may be associated with the unknown, and a few tears may be shed, but this too will go away with time. Our instructors are trained to be sensitive to these fears and anxieties and will help ease the child into the water compassionately. Patience, reinforcement, and lots of love and encouragement from both parent and instructor are key in this situation.
