82. Oh yeah, the mother was at the facility
She didn't drop the children off, now did she. She was there, probably watching her 2 year old. She expected the 6 life guards to keep her child from drowning. What if the mother couldn't swim, should she never trust a lifeguard to do their job, and keep her child out of the water forever?

When I was a kid taking swimming lessons, they didn't want the parents there because it was harder to get the kids to pay attention and listen to the lifeguard.

Funny, one minute parents are smothering their children, never letting them learn to handle things on their own, never learning to respect authority figures. The next they're supposed to hover over the kid every second.

I still say there's a certain kind of person who appeases their own egos by condemning everybody else, and any kind of parenting thread brings them out in droves.
