"Never take the risk. Always be around to watch over them" - This is the advice given by the aunt of a 13-year old girl who was almost drowned in a condo swimming pool.
But in this case the girl and her friends sneaked out in the early morning to go swimming in the pool. So how would the adults know and be around to watch them?
Nowadays it is not uncommon to see kids running around and not obeying their parents. I would say parents should discipline their young children. Tell them they cannot go swimming alone and must get permission from their parents or the person taking care of them. If they disobey, punish them.
