Happy Fish Swimming Singapore | Amelia's Swim like a Happy Fish

Amelia's Swimming Lesson at The Chuan Condominium. Every Tuesday 4pm.

Amelia was able to conquering a fear of swimming after 4 lessons with me. In this video she already learn more than 8 lessons

Here are some of the lessons I thought her to overcome her fear of swimming.

I let her splash around in it from the time they can sit up at pool side on first lesson.

I make swimming lessons fun and safe on her first water experience. If she get water in their eyes or nose, or slip and fall, she will likely to have a bad first experience in the water. So I go with her very slowly.

I bring her into the water by holding her close. Never, ever, tell her I will hold her and let her go under. Once she trust I will protect her in the water, she will begin to feel more at ease.

Once she was reluctant to go into the water, and I told her not to worry let put your toe in first, then your legs, etc.

She was scared, I keep asking her to go in, or try it, but did not pressure her. 

A child's attitude and willingness are half the battle.

I did not use arm flotations because using arm flotations or inner tubes, this gives her a false sense of security.

Sometimes she was scared because she worry 'what if she go under?' Or, 'What if she get water up my nose?' 

By explaining safety and technique, I calm her fears.

I started in the shallow pools because shallow pools are a great way to get children accustomed to the water before they go in a "big pool."

In this video she eventually overcome her fears, and enjoy her swimming lesson since than till now!

She told me she want to be like a Happy fish swimming in the water.!
