    Default Quick response : supervision qn

    Is it ok that a 4 yo and a 2 yo are left in the bath together whilst the parents are in a different room?

    Maybe for a quick duck into another room to grab a towel or whatever. Not for prolonged times though not IMO.

    Like just next to the bathroom or other side of house.

    Yes if next to bathroom, no if further away that you might not hear them.

    I guess it depends on the kiddies. How much mischief they are likely to get up to.

    My older two yes I would have, my younger 2 no way.

    ETA do you mean totally unsupervised or checking in every so often? If totally unsupervised then no.

    Hmmmm no, a 2yr old could slip under the water pretty easily.

    no. not for me anyway.

    the 4 yr old I would leave for a few seconds to grab something ... but not with a 2 yr old. And not together.

    And definitely not to go watch tv

    You just never know ...

    ....and it's not the responsibility of the four year old to "supervise".
