i am a single mum of 2 beautiful girls (4 yrs and 4months) I decided to try and take my 2 Girls swimming at my local pool. I could walk there so as not to spend much money and it’s great excersise.
i arrived to be told I could enter as they have a strict 1:1 parent to child policy but the pool 10 miles away may have a different policy I tried to argue and explain I am a single parent but felt upset and angry and had to walk away before my emotions got the better of me.
eventually we left and my eldest was gutted we couldn’t swim so I took the money I was going to spend on food for myself and got us taxi to that pool which was actually too deep and freezing for my infant I went to the local one as they had a small shallow and warm pool.
never felt so deflated about what should of been a nice day out for us 😢
