It's one thing to try and get your kid comfortable in the water, but if you don't know how to teach them to swim or they don't want to learn from you, then lessons are best. Plus with lessons you can go year round whereas getting access to an indoor pool year round is more difficult. Heck, I have trouble getting DS to show me what he's learned when we do go to the pool. A YMCA membership probably costs more than lessons.
