Bringing it All Home

My Son and Daughter are having swimming lessons this week. They have not spent a lot of time in the water over the past years and as a result it has showed up in my Son developing a fear of putting his face in the water. The instructor told me that all they really need is more time in the pool.

Later, I attended a Toastmaster's Meeting and was disappointed when I ummed and ahhed my way through the improv speech. Fortunately, I was able to make them laugh which accounted for almost 20 seconds of my talk.

I asked my mentor, Paul, afterwards what he thought of my Table Topic and he said I did fine but not to worry as the ability to think of something quickly to talk about only takes a lot of practise.



Kids usually fear water especially when they have not been into one much. My grandson loves water but put him in a pool and hell breaks out.
Thanks for dropping by.

My little grand baby had her first swimming lesson at 6 months old. I think it's good to start them young. My sons feared the water for a long time. Even when he was in swimming lessons, he was afraid. He got over it.

Hi FC!

I am glad to hear that your sons got over their fear. I hope for the same.
