  • Not at all...I live by a river, and see way to many kids falling in and/or drowning...I would rather be safe than sorry.

  • How old is he? I don't make my 2 year old but when we go to a river or a creek we are always right there.

  • Absolutely not! It's a good habit to get into, wearing a vest near any body of water. He'll fight you less when next time it's on a dock or in a boat

  • If its deep right there where he is standing then I probably would too.

  • Off of a bank, yes. The creeks and rivers we have here aren't sharp drop offs from the bank. Off a dock, totally acceptable.

  • nope!! that water could be moving faster than you think. my ds(3.5) can swim but he'd still be in one if he was close to a river or anything.

  • Not at all! Good for you for being a responsible, caring, plugged in parent.
