Dear (sometimes)anxious and (many a time)irritating parents of kids coming to swimming pool:
a) Your kid will always be safe in a 3ft swimming pool. The minimum height required for a kid to join swimming classes is 4ft.
b) At any given point, there are around 10 people learning to swim, 4 others practicing, and two coaches. If they cannot take care of your kid, no one else can.
c) Trying to teach them when you are standing on the shores does not work. It just leads to excess noise pollution levels around the swimming pool.
d) For god's sake, the kids are coming to learn to swim, not for anything else. So, please avoid plastering their faces with Talc and dressing them up daintily. They will have to take a shower anyway before they enter the swimming pool and they will be half naked inside it.
