I personally think it depends on the kid.



My 4 yr old has autism, he loves the water, but if I were to suddenly dunk him- he would be really upset. Another issue is he gets ear infections easily, so dunking him as a baby would have probably been a bad thing.



My 3 yr old has PTSD and part of it is having trust issues that he isn't going to be hurt, again if I were to dunk him, it would end badly, (as in it takes us over 45 mins at the pool just to get him into the water as it is!)



Now my 9 month old, loves tub time, splashing etc, I would see no issue doing this with him.



Neither one of my older two can swim, I don't think that should be offensive to anyone, we have enrolled them both in water safety/swim classes, but we spend so much time there just getting them to the water- teaching them to swim is a secondary thing at this time.
