There is an important difference between being fearful, and being apprehensive because you are not yet skilled in a new environment. ISR is not like traditional swim lessons; it is a drowning prevention program that teaches survival swimming. Sometimes as a parent, you make choices for your child’s safety, like sitting in a car seat, because you know they are important. The same can be said for ISR.
Once competent in their skills, many children cannot be dragged away from the pool. They are having entirely too much FUN.
The fact that drowning is the leading cause of accidental death for children under the age of four is a grim testament to the fact that traditional approaches can, and do, fail. ISR’s Self-Rescue® program exists so that, when other protective measures break down, your child can save himself.
