  1. I am desperate to find someone to teach my son how to swim. I posted about this just yesterday on my blog. I thinn he is going to need private instruction. We live in Fayetteville and it would be great if we could find someone with a pool! Again, I am desperate! He is 5-years-old and is a feisty little boy. He is afraid of going under water and thus far group lessons have done nothing.
