I don’t know how to swim, I never learned, and none of my kids know how to swim either. That’s why when we were looking for houses to buy, we didn’t buy the one with swimming pool at the back yard. I asked my husband why, and he simply said because the pool didn’t have safety pool fence to keep our kids from falling to the pool. We have 3 younger kids that can get harmed if we bought that house. Private swimming pool has to have fence for safety and security reason. Our friend who has a pool, built a fence around their pool, that’s why when we went there last week, we didn’t have to yell at the kids because the gate was locked and they can’t get in. Smart move on their side.
