What would you like to do?
Should you get a release from the parents when their children play in your pool?
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.

When your parents say something for you to follow even though its bad.
NO!!! Not only does it hurt the child, it is often linked to sexual pleasure later in life. Children tend to copy their parents, so they will find it alright to smack people! …Not only that, but, if it leaves a mark, you could be imprisoned for up to 18 months or have a £2000 fine. Another point to make would be that, in this day and age, children (me being a child, I know) are now at the stage that they will hide cameras... "give me a laptop or I'll sue you" etc. And, really, do you want to give your child a laptop? No. So don't do 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.
Yes you should obey them unless they are telling you to die or something like that. But otherwise you should.
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
If you're asking whether or not parents should be honest in dealing with their children....I believe that they should definitely be "frank" with their children. Of course, the…y are some things and topics that will be over their heads but it is important to speak with them as close as you can to their level. You can do this in by equating the situation to something that they have been through or that they would more readily understand. This is especially true when dealing with topics such as death, which can be quite difficult for children when adults are not open and honest with them. Young children do not always understand the deeper levels of meaning in complex statements and are likely to take them literally. Overall, it is best to keep things simple, to bring things down to their level and to let them know that their feelings are valid and normal. and that you are there to speak with them when needed.
yo mom make yourself useful and make me a sandwich
Only on their birthday. Spoiling a child usually needs up bad in the long run.
absoloutly NOT. Quite obviously, children need their space to learn on their own and one day be their own person. Spying on them can be psychologically damaging to the extent …that they may never be able to be alone in life. Spying on your kids is an invasion of personal privacy and is highly discouraged.
no no one in the world should get tired of their children or else the children will be very hurt if they do get tired of them and that would just cause problems for the entire… family I don't know about getting tired of them. However, everyone needs to take breaks from each other. For instance, I homeschool my kids, plus work from a home office. I am with my kids 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Once in a while, we need a break. They need one from me as bad as I need one from them. It is healthy to send the kids to the aunt and uncle's house or gramma's place for a night so you can have a date with hubby, or a night with the girlfriends. As long as they are somewhere that you can trust, and they can have some fun too, it is good for you both.
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.
