Waivers for Children Using Your Pool It can't hurt, but whether it will stand up in court or not is anybody's guess. It depends on the law in your state. In many jurisdictions, an unfenced pool is known as an "attractive nuisance" and if the neighbors have unrestricted access to it, you may be liable for any injuries they suffer. Your city codes may requre that you provide a fence with a locked gate. In any case, if neighbors/friends are swimming in your pool, you would be well advised to watch them like a hawk. A good idea is to equip yourself with as much liability coverage under your homeowners' insurance company as you can arrange. More input from other FAQ Farmers:
- I suppose you could ask for one. The parents might be a little concerned about how safe their child would be or even be insulted. Nevertheless, it is your property and your choice. I doubt if that would relieve you of any responsibility in case of an accident. Even pools that are posted with No Trespass, Private Property, No Lifeguard on Duty, and that sort of thing have had lawsuit judgments awarded against them. In my opinion, it would be similar to the permission slips your child brings home for school field trips. They look good on paper but are not a legally binding document.
- Make sure you have good liability insurance. As far as getting a signed waiver, its ridiculous and you would be viewed as eccentric and over-dramatic.

Thanks for the feedback!
What should you do if the lifeguards at a public pool are mean to children and talk to them disrespectfully when parents are not with them?
well first things first... Don't take no **** from a lifeguard!! . I was told i would never be a good enough swimmer now look @ me I have been asked to join the summer team!!…! Go CAN-Y- CUDAS!!! . Go to the desk And Tell them about it!
Opinion: Whatever your opinion is it works on some kids but some kids need a different punishment. Opinion: No, but only when they have done something really bad. Opinion:… The answer is yes. Kids today get away with way to much. There are never ever any consequences for any bad deed done so the deeds keep getting worse until the day they walk into a school and start blowing away everyone in sight. If you start spanking them, letting them know there are ramifications for bad deeds that involve more than simply yelling at them they may think twice before doing something stupid.
when you know morally,what they are telling you to do is not right,example : if they tell you to go rob a grocery store , thats when you don't obey them.
maby a smack on the bum but not a slap!!
Yes, this is a big part of parenting. In an ideal world, one without the threat of Chinese Communism or Islamic fundamentalism, people of the West would not be allowed to ha…ve children unless they could demonstrate that they were WORTHY of having children. Unfortunately, it is not an ideal world. The Muslims routinely have 15 to 18 children per litter. These issue grow up to become...wait for it...MUSLIMS! And at 15 to 18 head a pop, that means our earth will be overrun in 20 years. A global Muslim state. No freedom, no spontaneity, no independent thinking, no books, no new ideas, no joy, no peace, only endless prayer wheels and walking in circles. Because AMERICANS typically are responsible and have only 1.5 children. Our culture cannot be sustained with numbers that low. Our only hope is in the form of a Deus Ex Machina that somehow manages to eliminate ALL the threats on ALL THE FRONTS. Countdown to Armegeddon. Countdown to the End Of The World.
help the child understand why what they did is wrong, and make sure the child knows that you love them. You can putt them on time out. Take some thing away from them tha…t they play with. Don't allow them to play with their friend's.
parents should DEFINENTLY correct their children or the kids might think it is fine and do it again
parents are the ideals of kids, if they be honest, their kids also will be the same., "be honest and build kids life"
No you should not smack your parents because that is vary disrespectful. Do you like it when your parents smack you everyday on purpose? Than don't do that to your parents tha…t shows you don't have any manners at all.
Only on their birthday. Spoiling a child usually needs up bad in the long run.
It would help if they had a little experience as a kid for growing up and if they want to be a babysitter or a teacher for a job so...................... yes
Help Keep The House Organized.
Because sometimes kids do some thing that their parent don't like. Or maybe to teach the kids a lesson. No offence trust me.
We all need to spend time with our friends and we need to be able to do this without someone looking over our shoulder.
It is up to the parents. In our modern world though, grounding might not be as effective as it was 50 years ago due to cell phones and the Internet making it possible to stay …in touch with your friends.
