Does your child cry when learning how to swim? Don’t worry; it’s more common than you think. At Aqua-Tots Swim Schools, we want to help and encourage your child to turn their tears into cheers!

4 Common Reasons Children Cry

  • It’s New – Swimming lessons are a new experience. There are new sights, sounds, textures, smells, faces, and interactions in the pool environment.
  • Age –With time, your child will gain control over their emotions and learn to enjoy the water.
  • Separation Anxiety – Your child may experience separation anxiety and feel anxious when away from familiar people and places.
  • Fear or Anger – Some children are genuinely fearful of the water and it takes time and patience to help them overcome their fear. Other children can become angry and use tears to control the situation. Our staff is here to help!
