We started taking our children to the pool very early in their lives. I remember when DS was about a year old he was absolutely fearless in and around the pool -- DH used to enjoy showing him off to other parents in the parent and tot swimming class by having DS jump into the water on his own. But I found out that my fearless boy was afraid of one thing -- male swimming instructors. He loved the ladies, was all smiles and flirty eyes (even at only 12 months old). But one session we had a male instructor -- if he approached DS and I or DH he would cling tightly and begin to cry. As soon as the instructor went to talk to another parent DS was back to being all smiles. After a couple of weeks, his fear lessened and the instructor was able to approach and help.
