Swimming again

Apparently tears in the pool again.

Under a new instructor and has been doing well. But felt that he was not good enough at breast stroke while "all the others could do it"!

This was the first time they were doing the breast stroke in any case.

Nonsense! we said. Mum's been trying to learn the breast stroke since she was nine and she has still to master it.

After much talking, "Yah, yah, I know. I'm trying to be perfect again."

I hope next Friday is going to be better.

I don't know what I need to do to get son to understand that he does not need to be perfect the first time around.

Or that most normal people need to put in loads and loads of practice at any one task to be good at it.

Any advice welcome.
