澄澄的媽咪-欣怡:我們每次來上課都要從雲林坐高鐵過來。帶兩個幼小的孩子坐高鐵,一個意見多、稍不順己意就哭鬧不休(管你是不是在趕路因為上課快要遲到了),一個要抓緊時間定時餵母奶,其中的辛苦是家在台北的媽咪不能感受的。但是每次在跟澄澄換好衣服下水上課之後,就覺得這一切的辛苦都值得了,因為我們真的好喜歡上游泳課,澄澄全程都笑咪咪的很enjoy,還有上課這半小時跟澄澄的互動也找回了生弟弟以前我跟他的親密感(現在因為要一個人顧兩個小孩、再加上做家事,常常忙到沒時間可以陪他玩,導致他這幾個月來常常亂發脾氣、還有常常故意搗蛋讓我生氣來引起我的注意力,讓我心力交粹)。

 

           我們真的好喜歡上藍汐老師的課,也很喜歡藍汐老師常常會講一些鼓勵媽媽的話,尤其像我這樣身邊長輩都不贊成小朋友那麼小就學游泳,常常在我耳邊碎碎念要我們不要再參加游泳課了,就很需要老師鼓勵讓我們堅持下去。

         

          我十分認同老師的教學理念:尊重孩子的個性,尊重孩子的學習速度和方式,如果要讓孩子學會游泳就必須堅持不懈。我們真的很幸運,能遇到這麼好的老師。

 

藍汐的話:澄澄是一個臉上總是掛著甜甜的笑容的很可愛的小男孩。澄澄6月在王朝上L1的時候,我還不知道他們住在雲林,只記得當時大腹便便的媽咪很堅定的對我說:等我生產完,我們會繼續上游泳課!小寶寶出生不到兩個月,媽咪果真帶著澄澄參加游泳課的第二期,這時我才知道每次上課媽咪都要帶著兩個寶寶從雲林坐高鐵過來!澄澄的媽咪讓我很佩服,因為1)儘管上課地點遙遠,但是他們從來沒有缺課也沒有遲到;2)媽咪獨自帶兩個寶寶來上游泳課,沒有人幫忙。弟弟在池邊的嬰兒車睡覺,媽咪和澄澄在水中上課。有如此用心和堅持的媽咪,澄澄寶貝學什麼都會很有成效的,我堅信!

We always take the high-speed rail from Yunlin to get to our baby swimming classes and with two small children it is not always easy. The older one, Cheng-Cheng, is very opinionated and gets fussy on the long train ride, while the little baby needs to be breast fed regularly during the ride, making it difficult to get to class on time. I cannot express enough how challenging it can be. Yet, every time I change Cheng-Cheng’s clothes and get him ready to go to swimming class I feel that all the effort is worth it. We really love teacher Lan-Xi’s baby swimming lessons. Not only is Cheng-Cheng very happy, smiling and enjoying himself the whole time, but I also get to enjoy one on one time with my son. Now that I have two children to care for, on top of housework and everything else, it can be difficult to play with Cheng-Cheng like I used to. He wants to spend time with me and regularly throws tantrums or makes trouble when I don’t give him enough attention, which is devastating for me at times.

  

We really love being a part of teacher Lan’s baby swimming lesson and also appreciate that teacher Lan often speaks words of encouragement to the moms.  Cheng-Cheng’s grandparents disagree with baby swimming and always try to persuade me to  discontinue the swimming class, which can be very discouraging and annoying. We do need to be encouraged from our teacher to help us carry on. I very much agree with the teacher’s philosophy: “Respect the child's personality and respect the child's learning speed and manner.” If you want the children to learn to swim you must carry on. We're so lucky to have met such a great teacher.

 

 

 

Teacher Lan says

 

Cheng-Cheng is a very cute boy, who always has a sweet smile on his face. This June Cheng-Cheng took our Level 1 class in Sun World Dynasty Hotel. I didn’t even know they were living in Yunlin at that time. I just remember his mummy was pregnant with a big belly and she firmly said to me:

“After I have the baby, we’ll be back to the swimming lessons right away!“ Within 2 months the little brother was born and she was already bringing Cheng-Cheng to join the next level swimming lesson.  It was then that I found out Cheng-Cheng’s mom was bringing two children all the way  from Yunlin on high-speed rail to join the class once a week!

 

Cheng-Cheng’s mom is a very good example to other parents because:

 

1) Even though they traveled a long distance to join the class they’re never late or absent for the class.

2) Often, when Cheng-Cheng is taking lessons with his mummy, his little brother is sleeping nearby in the stroller since she doesn’t have anyone there to help, which is very unusual among Taiwanese moms. She is a very independent and determined mother.
