I'm glad that it worked well for you and your student.
I was a water baby myself. My mom was a YMCA swimming instructor. She had me in the water before I could walk.
I believe that I large factor in the problems experienced by the children I have been with in OW sessions is the tough environment up here in Northern and Central California. We do our OW classes on the Sonoma Coast and in Monterey. I've known plenty of adults who have had trouble with our difficult entries, water in the mid-40's to low 50's, and 5 ft. viz. The "one approach fits all environments" in OW training is one of my greatest concerns with the present system.
