My 6 year old son has been learning to swim since he was 4. He’s doing really well and I’m very very proud. However I have a question…..

Why oh why do they insist on teaching kids ‘Butterfly’????

It’s the hardest and funniest looking stroke there is. You never see someone go for a leisurely swim doing butterfly do you?? If everyone did the lifeguards would have the hardest job in the world as it would look like everyone was drowning.

Tristan: It’s stupid!!! I try really hard and I don’t get very far. It’s ridiculous. AND I sink!

Couldn’t put it better myself 🙂
Here’s my advice to swimming instructors. Give up teaching it and spend more time teaching the kids not to drink the water and ensure they go to the toilet in the appropriate facilities 🙂
