ALL CHILDREN (and adults too) MANIPULATE for control. You as a parent are on duty 24 hours a day and there are gaps in your continuity of parenting. Todd, as the swim instructor has your child for 10-15 minutes and cannot pay attention to the manipulative noise (crying). ALL STUDENTS CRY - Some for more days than others but generally 2-4 days.
Saving one's life demands an immediate action which is developed as a CONDITIONED RESPONSE. The no nonsense method of instruction is time-tested. It works, watch and enjoy your child learn a LIFE SKILL!

A child's daily routine relies on maintaining CONTROL through MANIPULATION. This is done vocally by crying. All children (and adults), as part of their natural growth, physical as well as mental, search for control. For this the child will vocally try to get the ball in their court.
Another commonality, is the young person's comfort level. Discipline is accomplished much easier with daily continuity within the family structure. Too many choices confuse most children. Make life simple, consistent and understandable. It will help your child progress in the early years as well as making parenting easier.
This swim program has been designed to teach any child how to swim. However, this won't be for every parent. What is Swim10 like? It could be three of the hardest days of your life.
Parents love our tough love about as much as they like having a baby without an epidural. But the joy of a new swimmer is like holding that new born baby - the labor is worth the result.


Learning to Swim

Keep these facts in mind:      
1. All humans automatically hold their breath when submerged in liquid.
2. The age a child can remember the life skill of swim starts at 17 months.
3. Kids are unpredictable, therefore you should not entrust them around water or rely on flotation devices.
We do not waste your time or money playing with your child in the water. We build their confidence and teach them they can do difficult things outside of their comfort zone. It can save their life. Our swim lessons will save you hundreds of hours of your time and potentially thousands of dollars to get this parenting task done.
