Swimming Lesson Ideas: Don't Just Teach Swimming Earn Trust

If you are working with a child trying to teach them to swim, remember that this is a very new experience for them. New experiences for children are always very scary.

Encourage them and praise them A Lot. You will get much further that way.

Don't push them more than a very little. If you push too much you could loose their trust and if you loose trust you will be fighting an up hill battle to teach them anything.

Trust has to be earned it is never taken for granted. But trust is also very fragile and takes very little to be broken.

Do what you say and say what you are going to do. Never say one thing and then do another. You will loose trust.

Enjoy
