Do you let your kids swim in lakes?

There was a post yesterday where someone said she will never let her kids swim in lakes. I find that odd.

Do you let your kids swim in lakes? If not, why not?

We love taking the boat out. Can't do that without a lake!

She can if she wants if we're ever at a lake.  We got to the beach every summer, so she's been in the ocean several times.

Yup. Lakes, rivers, creeks, streams, puddles, just not pools lol. I wouldn't be against a pool, we've had our own. Public pools just creep me out lol and we play outside in the wild too much for that.

 Mine never have, but if they could swim, I'd probably let them if we went to a lake.
