Need advice losing the plot

Posted by: Kels10 Swansea Mid-Glamorgan Posts: 1

Today I feel like the worst mother in the world and I don't know what to do. Today my son refused to go to his swimming lesson. He's been going for 3 years and usually loves it. He didn't say anything until he was about to get in the pool and then he just refused point blank. When I was a kid I didn't go to swimming lessons, not even with the school because my parents didn't give consent. They've always said it's because I didn't want to, and I've always resented them for letting me have my own way. They were the parents, they should have been stronger and made me go. I hate not being able to swim. Now this has happened today, I'm terrified that I am the same as my mother, I could not persuade him into the pool even though I tried begging, bribery, removing privileges etc. I've been in tears all night and feel like I've completely lost my grip on parenting.
