We’ve been enjoying a lot of time at my sister’s apartment complex pool. Hot weather in the South and bored kids equals lots of pool time but the only bad thing about that brilliant idea is all the other parents with the same brilliant idea and, let’s face it, sometimes other people’s kids can be obnoxious. (Hey, mine can be too.)
Your kid may be guilty of one or all of these 10 swimming pool party fouls:
The Obnoxious Splasher – Able to splash everyone and everything within a 20-foot radius. Reading a book on your Kindle? You might want to move your lounge chair to the other side of the pool.
The Cannon Ball Jerk – A very close relative to The Obnoxious Splasher (see above), this child does not know the meaning of entering the pool in any fashion that doesn’t involve mucho bravado and soaking everyone poolside.
The Snot Hawker – Probably one of the grossest phenomena at the pool, this kid’s sinus drainage is apparently accelerated by chlorine. They also don’t know the meaning of tissues because isn’t that what the back of your hand and water is for? See also, the pool should not be your kid’s personal giant Neti pot.
