The answer? Yes, no, maybe, it depends a lot on how crying is handled at home.

If crying brings a lot of attention, they will probably cry during the PediaH2O lesson.

As a parent, it is natural to want to soothe your child’s cry. Whether it is due to hunger or tiredness, we hate to see them cry. However, when your child cries during their PediaH2O lesson, engaging in the lesson will do more harm than good.

If mom is unsure that she is doing the right thing, they will definitely cry. Your baby can read you like a book. If you are confident and truly happy watching the lessons, if your face is smiling and excited, if you tell the child what a great job they are doing after each lesson, if you feel comfortable, the baby will do great. We have had kids that cry, some that never cry, and some that quit crying after a couple of lessons. All stop crying sooner or later.

Crying is communication, and it can mean lots of things. Remember: your PediaH2O Instructor is a trained professional who knows how to deal with a crying child. Instructors at Technique Swim Center are patient and caring individuals who want your child to succeed. Crying is never a reason to not make sure that your child is a great swimmer and floater. These lessons may save your child’s life, and they will most certainly give them a lifetime of water fun. You will never regret it.
