Hayden needs to learn how to swim. We have tried group lessons at our local public pool for years. It has not worked - at all. He needs private, individual instruction.
He is apprehensive about the water and going "under." He is also bossy and feisty.
He needs an experienced teacher to work with him and teach him to swim.
I have approached two instructors thus far; unfortunately, they are both unable to teach him because of scheduling conflicts.
I am feeling desperate.
We don't have a pool, so it would be best if the instructor had a pool or had access to one. If needed, we could probably use a friend's pool.
This is really starting to stress me out.
I want my son to be able to swim - to not just be comfortable in the water.
I was on swim teams from the time I was 7-years-old until I was a teenager. It was something that was a part of me. And for him to be so uncomfortable in the water (in terms of swimming) is disconcerting.
I am hopeful that I will find someone soon.
I know Hayden would prefer a young, pretty girl (he loves the ladies) - but I am up for anyone who is capable of teaching my little man how to swim.
So PLEASE send me names/numbers of anyone you know in Fayetteville, Arkansas who can help me. I am serious.
