Tuesday Tips – Just Keep Swimming

Acknowledge your child’s fears.

New experiences can be stressful situations. It is totally appropriate for your child to be
scared. Encourage them to give new things a go, don’t always allow them to back away from
facing their fears, or they will never conquer them. Don’t yell or belittle, just assure your child
that the coach would not have suggested the event or meet if your child was not ready.
Remember your job is to love and support your child through all of the swimming experience
