    haha, why are you so worked up? you just did the same thing by condemning his child.

    I don't think you really understood what I wrote. You are merging two different situations into one and thinking they are the same. Neither were you there or do you know what happened. So, who are you to judge who's slow, who's wrong, who's right? And who is condemning who?
    They are my kids, and I decide what is right or wrong for them. I didn't say who is right or wrong but you did.

    I used to swim competitively when I was younger, and to set the record straight, I am not conducting any swimming lessons. My experience in teaching my girls how to swim is that for children to learn, the will first have to feel comfortable and relaxed in the water, if they fear water, it will almost be impossible to learn how to swim. Once they are confident, it is amazing how fast they can pick up, 3-4 hours and they can swim after that it's practice, practice, proctice. BTW, I have seen some children learn swimming and some of their strokes are not correct ( i.e. in a competition, they will be disqualified except for freestyle, since freestyle means you can swim any stroke but everyone uses a front crawl as it is the fastest ). So, beware when selecting a swimming coach, unless you just want your kid to be able to swim.

    I didn't judge that, your posting spelt out your feelings.

    I don't think so. It remains your judgement, and it's your interpretation of my post. In any case, why do you feel so hung up regarding this? Do I know you?

    It's good to note that some of us are still able to turn a nice thread into a hostile battle ground. Some of you are just some piece of work!!!!

    teach yr child yourself lah...that is if u know how to swim. Liek many of u, we too made a mistake to send our young one to sunway lagoon club. After 6 lessons my lil one is still ahnging onto the edge fo teh pool blowing bubbles!
    Despite the coach (duno his name aledy) saying 8lessons are enuff..rm160 of course paid up front...I suspek he wanna us to sign up for another 8 lessons, on the ground that my lil one is slow lah, boring lah, dont listen lah, lazy lah...whatever...

    I got fedup.

    I took my lil one out after the 7lesson...went to 3K. Taught her to relax, float and VIOLA in 2 hours she can float and kinda swim backstroke...the enxt day, i flipped her over and taught her dunno what front stroke lah...she can now swim and is mighty proud of it! No thanks to no swimming coach. TIPU punya!

    Maybe they can teach those who ALREADY know how to swim/float in a more successful manner...me? I learn in the sea! Dunno ask me what stroke Ok...I can only save my own life and also my other half and my own child...the rest? sori ah. I am not very fit lah!

    Take your baby to the pool yourself.... I did that with my son when he was 7 months old. And I never take him to the baby pool. Always the adult pool so he can't feel the ground. I bought the arm floats for him and let him get used to moving about the water and encouraging him to kick/blow bubbles. Now he can swim on his own. I'll probably teach him to float on his own when he's more confident/older.

    I took my 13 months old daughter into the pool, and she's the loudest among all

    when she's in the water, she'll be laughing, giggling and scream in excitement so loud until everyone is staring at me

    unlike when we first introduce her to the pool at the age of 10 months old, she was terrified and refused to go into the water. And now? she can't wait to jump into the pool

    good thing she is so comfortable in the water and enjoy it so much... but she dislike floats thou... she'll try to climb out whenever we puts her into one.

    For children to learn how to swim, you have to start at a very young age., preferably 8 months. I did not teach my two sons how to swim. Those days when they were young, I would always bring them to Shah Motel , put floats on their arms and body and let them enjoy the water starting at 10.00am and by lunch time they will be hungry and buy them chicken chops. This routine lasted 3 months .

    One day, they just threw away the floats and now they can swim across the muar river. No need coach, just natural water exposure and water confidence and parential commitment.

    I agree with Chia. I have been exposing my son since 7 months though not often enough. Now at 3 he can "swim" about with his arm floats.
