Proud mummy, Pink, shared a photo of her toddler during swimming lessons. But of course fans were not happy that he was so upset.
“Swimming lessons are fu*king fun you guys,” Pink wrote alongside the video of Jameson in the swimming pool.
Fans soon began to attack the singer.
“He will be made to hate it and dread each lesson. Pink I am surprised at you,” one commenter posted.
“I count that as child abuse. I love your music but this is bullcrap,” another declared.
“He’s a baby. Seems a little harsh,” someone else suggested.
“Isn’t he a little small for that? Sounds as [if] he is very scared. Swimming should be fun. Take care little one,”
Of course loyal her fans soon jumped to her defence.
“Love this, but I am such a baby as I would jump in and grab him. Well not really !! LOL”
“In Norway, they start swimming at a few months old. It’s good for them to get used to water that young. The babies there play games in the water, they dive and have fun.”
“He looks scared. But then he does it.”
“Babies are amazing natural swimmers & overcome fear fairly easily. Don’t criticize unless you have data & have tried / tested it. I have!”
“awesome mama. It’s so important for kids who live around water to be taught the basics. He will LOVE it.”
“I love this… let her teach a gently move forward. Way to go!”
Pink responded to the criticism saying, “My daughter started at 6 months. Cried every day for five days. Then I took her again at 18 months. Cried every day. Again at 2 1/2. Screamed bloody murder.”
“My hands were shaking. On the way to the car she said ‘mama, that was so much fun.’ I was like, ‘WHAT?!’ Now, she swims like an actual fish, and she loves it. And I no longer worry about her every second she’s in the water.”
“My son, this is his first lesson. But when he is also safe in the water and knows how to swim out of a pool without panicking, or knows how to roll over and lay on his back, Believe me sweetie, you’re the last person I’ll be thinking of. Swimming should be safe first, and then fun.”
