  • Did this just start at 2? The first time we put my son into a pool (he is almost 1), he freaked out. We gradually got him used to it. He used to love the bath, but now tries to get out. I think it depends on their mood. You should coax him with toys and make sure you don't force him. Good luck!

  • It's probably fine. Just do your best at making it fun. Goggle "soap crayon recipe" online and have him help you make your own bath crayons to play with.

    Mostly everyone has a phobia of some kind. My grandmother was scared to death of water. I'm afraid of heights and falling. He will probably be ok in time :)
