ISR (Infant Swimming Resource) Swim
My daughter is considering the controversial ISR program for her 1 and 3 year olds. The 3 year old is afraid of the water and local instructors have not managed to get her in. Apparently with ISR, they take a more violent approach and force the child in the water for 10 min a day, 5 days a week, for 6 weeks. they teach the child how to survive if they fall into deep water. They do so by forcing them into deep water. The whole idea rubs me the wrong way but I don't have any other suggestions. I wonder if any TI folks have any thoughts. They sell the program as potentially saving the childs life, so it is pretty potent marketing and a compelling reason to do something.
