Do you get in the pool and play with them or do you take a book and read or do something else while they swim?
My son is only 2 yrs old. Both DH and I get in the pool w him and play.
I've always gone in the pool with them. Especially when they were younger. As they got older, I went in less, and monitored more.
A little bit of both.
My guys are 7, 9 and 14. I always get in the pool and either play or just swim. It's no fun just sitting while they get to swim.
They're 10 and 7. I get in with them, for about 20 minutes at a time. I have to limit sun exposure with my meds, so, I'll get out for another 20 and watch them from my spot in the shade! :)
Ds is only 3 so I get in with him while dd goes and does what she wants
I grab a book. I don't know how to swim and he loves going in the deep end
