Dangerous!! DH calling CPS

I took DS to the pool today in our condo complex. There were kids in the pool. Their parents have been warned. Anyone under 12 must be supervised by an adult in the pool. ONE of the kids was 13. Every one else was between 6 and 11.

BUT one was 3! being "supervised" by her 11 yr old brother (who was NOT watching her) she was in the jacuzzi (4 ft deep with a step on one side) alone and he was busy splashing & jumping in the big pool. He was NOT watching!!

So DH says that he is going to call CPS because it's NOT safe and she's been warned. What would you do?

I would go to the condo management first and see what they do.

He is the HOA president. No steps have been listed as to punishment for not supervising kids in the pool. We are both genuinely concerned for this girls safety.

I would call too.  If that child drowns and I hadn't done anything, I could never forgive myself.

I sure wouldn't waste time calling CPS.

Being watched  by an 11 year old isn't that big of a deal. I watched my 2 year old cousin when I was 11, and took her to the pool, and would turn my head and mind my friends for a minute.

CPS won't do anything about it, especially if there are no true reasons if there is abuse being made. Go to the mangement first.

Maybe just go to the parents. Maybe they thought the 11 was supervising. It does not mean they are. Ad parents for trusting the older child and IMO def not CPS worthy
