+1I have a 10yo 4yo and 1yo My mom has a pool and everytime I take my kids over to see grandma im constantly nervous she has a pool gate and everything my kids know not to go out back by themselves. Hell I have a plastic kiddie pool in my back yard for the dogs in the summer time and that makes me nervous as hell.
I have a 2 yr old and a 3 1/2 year old. When around water (including my little fill up pool in the back), I never keep my eye off them. Not even for a second!!!
My parents always wanted our kids to go out to their place in the desert. They have a walk in pool with no gate. I told them that we had to be there because my kids will go in no matter who's around. Well the first time we went, my son fell in the pool in the first 60 seconds. My dad was right there. If nobod would have been there....DEAD
Our second in charge of HR at my work lost her son a year ago. He was 3 1/2 and her dad was watching their grandson. Well the Grandfather received a phone call. He was on the phone for 5-10 minutes. The child went through the doggy door and the pool gate was open. He found him floating. Horrible!
I often get sh_t for being over protective when it comes to this stuff. I could give a rats ass!!! I would take everything I had not to put a bullet in my head if I could have prevented their death.
