We don't have a pool, but have neighbors who do - and we live around a lot of water. Whenever my daughter SEES water, she takes off running and would simply step off the edge of the pool / body of water, regardless if we were yelling, if anyone else was in the pool, nothing. She never got into the pool, mind you, but it's stressful. She can run even faster now, so I'm already thinking about the pools in our area and our friends houses getting uncovered.
The thing is - it's 855 for the registration fee and the 6 weeks of lessons. That's a hard pill to swallow, especially with people saying "you don't need that!" Or "plenty of people learn to swim without spending that kind of money" I know they are right. But I get a knot in my stomach thinking that she only needs to get away from me for a few minutes. It's a worse case, of course. But it happens every summer.
So. Thoughts? 855 worth it or no?
