How happy I saw my youngest son really enjoying the beach, a couple weeks ago at an island in Sunda Strait. He has managed to fight his sense of trauma on water, because 2 years ago he nealry drowned in a swimming pool.
Previously he was always crying, screaming, and rebel every time I take him to the pool or beach as well, although small wave. In fact, during the trip he still looked scared. On the boat, his face was tense.
Fortunately, he was surrounded by the people who always loves and cares him. They helped him to face his fear. So he could totally enjoyed the vacation with his older brother, his dad, all my friends, and me. 🙂
