Opinions needed! WWYD?

My 14 yr old DS will be babysitting his siblings this summer, they are 10, 7,7 and 4, We have a pool in our backyard and they want to go swimming through out the day. Would you let the use the pool while you were at work?

please don't be rude, I just want your opinion on what you would do if these were your kids.

  • Just because it's better to be safe then sorry, I would not! God forbid anything should happen imagine not only ur pain and suffering but ur 14yr old would never be the same since they were his responsibility! I would just tell them that the minute u get home from work they can get right in the pool!

  • No, my niece watches my dd and she is 15. I tell them no pool unless I am home. It worries me.

  • No, no pool, however kids are kids and will push boundaries, I think i would get my son in charge CPR certified just in case.
