Aw, thanks Ivy. I see my job as making available opportunities to swim in a pleasant environment and offering fun ways to practice skills. DS' job is to determine our activities and how much of any given activity we do. The only limit I set is that we must be in the pool for at least 2 half hour sessions per week. Comfort and skill will come from many positive experiences and positive associations with the activity. smile
