DP were having a discussion today about what age it would be OK to leave a child to swim unsupervised.
DP seems to think at age 5 if the child can swim you don't need to watch over them but as long as you are within earshot it's OK.
I disagree with this completely....l think a child age 5, whether they can swim or not needs to be watched. I said to DP children will not shout or make a sound while they are drowning.
If my child was age 10 and over and could swim, then l wouldn't feel the necessity to watch over them.
I found DP's view on this really disturbing.
