Kicked out of swimming lessons?

Well, we signed up Rilyn for swimming lessons this summer because she desperately needs it!  She is freaked out to go under the water or even float in water with floaties on!  She had her first lesson this week and she cried during most of it.  After the lesson the head instructor informed me that my daughter will be ‘asked to leave’ the swimming lessons (with a refund of course) if she keeps up her crying.  They told me Rilyn has one more chance to prove that she can do a lesson with minimal crying because otherwise it is “unsafe for the instructor”.  (Rilyn did flail wildly at the instructor a couple of times when she was trying to get her to back float!)  I’ll keep you posted to see if Rilyn was “allowed” to keep having lessons!
