Sounds like her brain is water logged. Don't hold your breath and dive into the deep end with this one, dangerous and annoying waters.
You obviously weren't doing your job right! You tech kids how to swim, not sink!
my daughter has been doing swimming lessons since she was 5 months old, and has been dunked under the water since then. it helps to teach them to hold their breath. although it's normally the parent swimming with the child unless they are older or do private lessons I guess.
Why was the kid underwater in the first place I dont't know why you put them there unless you were teaching him how to dive and swim underwater
When I was about 4 I started swimming lessons. My mum said I use to swim backstroke with my head under the water and smiling. I remember them telling us to put our heads under the water and come back up. I was always under the water, just because I liked it. You have to put your head in the water at some point...just not backstroke! :P
I think it depends how old the child was? Maybe your teaching method is just something she's never experienced before! But it's not like you forced the child underwater, you probably just made them dip there head underneath and tried making them swim that way. Parents are crazy protective of their children, understandably! Don't worry OP, keep doing your job!
