The worst part about teaching is the parents!
I have owned a swim school for 20 years and I’m over them. Love the kids (even the bad ones), love the atmosphere, love my teachers, love swimming, but these parents are single-handedly wanting me out of the business, a business I’ve been in for the last 35 years of my life.
My program is completely sold out 7 days a week at my own location along with a few locations I do a couple of days a week at that I was asked to do lessons there; private schools, town pools, health clubs, etc. To put it in perspective I run classes on Sundays nonstop from 9 AM to 8 PM at my own location. But for whatever reason these parents think they know more then we do. I’m at the point where I feel like saying to each and everyone of them who complain if you have a problem with what we do than go on into the water and teach them yourself.
It just comes down to they don’t want to take responsibility for their kids down to a special needs boy defecating in our pool by having him wear a water diaper.
I’m incredibly proud of what I created, but I am over it.
