I happen to live in a neighborhood with tons of kiddos. My son is 9. Most of the kids are around that age. The pool is about a week from being open and half the kids next door have already asked if they can swim, haha.
I wondering if there is anything I need to do to protect myself in case of anything bad going down. I know the neighbors down the street had us sign a waiver to use the trampoline. Does something like that exist or is it common for above ground pools? There's literally 20 something kids running around here, a small cul de sac, and I can see all of them in the backyard ready to swim in the pool when the time comes.
I don't wanna be the grumpy old man that doesn't let the kiddos use the pool, but I also don't wanna have anyone getting hurt on a daily basis (we're talking 7 - 12 year old boys and girls, madness abound!).
What are your thoughts on this situation? We have excellent home insurance to cover an lawsuits. Should i post "Rules" up on the deck? Should I write them down and pass them out to all the parents of the kids?
Thanks for any opinions!
