When I was a kid my parents just dropped me off . Then we lived across the street from the yacht club and I was on the swim team my Mom would wake me up, hand me a towel and a Pop Tart and say practice is starting, walk across the street and have a good practice. I went on to be a lifeguard, swim instructor, junior Olympic swimmer .

My kids took lessons at the YMCA- they have a no parents on the pool deck rule and a window that parents can watch through but the kids can't see them. This keeps most parents from being too involved. I have girls and they don't take sh*t from anyone- on the pool deck, the schoolyard, in school- they learned that on their own.
