I swam young can’t recall any
lessons – for my first child I used
the red cross guide put a tub of
water on the dock little demi, 2 plus,  
blew bubbles in the water, docily
followed all the directions hold your
breath etc she gradually learned first
on land then out from shore now along
comes daughter #2:  I again get tub book
try to get her to follow the rules she will
have none of it no tub on the dock no
blowing bubbles no breath-holding finally
in frustration exasperation I explode
you wanna swim? THEN SWIM! she jumps
in the lake paddles off to join her sister
