Why Didn't Anybody Tell Me: Swim Lessons

Everyone wants a water baby. Parent-and-child swim classes have become increasingly popular since swimming with baby builds confidence, helps improve stamina and breathing, and creates a strong bond between mom and tot.

That's why a Sugar HQ staffer enrolled both her kids in a well respected swim school despite the pricey fee. But, this week while she was practicing under water breathing with her son, she heard a gagging noise from the other side of the pool. To find out what happened


When she looked over, she saw one of the other lil swimmers vomit in the pool. And, we're not talking about a bit of swallowed water, it was the entire contents of the kid's stomach.

Disturbed and disgusted, she assumed everyone would be instructed to exit the pool. Instead, she was flabbergasted to hear the instructor shake it off as no big deal and grab a strainer in a feeble attempt to remove the contents that had spread throughout the water.

Shocked, she gave her kids a soapy, hot water rinse after class, but she is still reeling from the incident. Offset by the lack of protocol at the pool and now weary of the facility's cleanliness, she's in a bit of a dilemma about what to do.

Which action would you take — pull your kids out of the swim school or just let the incident and water filter?
