As a parent would you let your kids jump into a swimming pool at the weekend fully clothed for the fun fo it

By this I mean their shoes socks the lot I think it would be fun if they did what do you think?

Report as

This question was asked last week.
My answer is no!
I did with jeans on and was pulled under, couldn't get up because of the weight of the wet jeans!
There are safer ways for a kid to have fun outside the lines, this is very dangerous!

What's the point? And no. The weight of the clothes and the shoes is dangerous if the kid jumps in where the water is over his/her head.

yes but do you not think it would be fun for them to do if they were doing it in a swimming pool where there was plenty of life gaurds no hand if they can swim that is?
Report as
I don't think it'd be fun, I think it'd be scary. Even a T shirt weighs you down.

If you or your kids are determined to ruin clothes I'd suggest a slip-N-slide rather than a full blown pool - plastic sheeting down a hill, water, and Dawn soap.

yes but the pool suonds more fun

The shoes will likely be ruined. As Questor mentions, you must be ABSOLUTELY ready to dive in to help them. It is a shock when someone first jumps in fully clothed. The weight is a definite new thing to have to learn how to swim with. It certainly can be done, but it is not as easy as in a swim suit.

Better not be the kind of shoes that could get wrecked in the pool. So, is this going to be part of the entertainment for a party or what? Why ask parents? They won't agree, right? The weight of the wet clothes and shoes and socks would keep you under unless someone was ready to rescue you I think.

I'm not a parent yet, but I suppose my answer could speak for most. Why the heck would someone let their kids do that? It's more of a hassle. You have to bring an entire change of clothes, you have more to wash, and they'll discover that it's no fun. I've done it before. Long story.

I guess it's fun when I was little at my dads wedding I jumped in the pool in my tux XD I was like 5 but the pool can ruin cloths and shoes so it's fine just try not to do it in really nice or new cloths and the weight isn't to dangerous like the other person said as long as someone is able to save you if anything does happen but cloths float so it's okay

I had to do that in lifeguard training. We had to jump in with jeans and a shirt and OLD shoes. Everything had to be removed in the water and then used as a floatation device. The shoes were useless, the jeans get tied off and "inflated" with air and the shirt was a hinderance. I let my son do the same thing after teaching him to swim...I had told him about having to do that and he wanted to try. I did insist that he remove his shoes first, though...shoes are expensive!

how did he get on and how old washe
Report as
He had a little trouble (I don't think he believed me when I said it was hard). He was 11.
Report as
well i spose there is one good thing about what he did at least he knows what it is like and at least you know that he knows how to do it and that if he did get in toa situation where he fell in to the water he knows what to do
Report as
how old is he now
Report as
Just turned 18
Report as
I wasn't expecting to be pulled under, it was a struggle. It's a great way to train if you know how to swim, and if someone is close by.
Report as
spose yuo may have a point but at least you did it and it gave you the added expareance need to know how to savieve after all it was your first time and you did not know what to expect but at least you did it
