Does working status have anything to do with supervision of children during the summer?

The 15 y/o "lifeguards" around here are acting under adult supervision and their main job is to be an extra set of eyes and ears for adult lifeguards. Or sometimes they do stuff like if a kid gets a cut or gets sick or something at the pool, the teen will sit with the kid after first aid has been given until the parents arrive. Stuff like that. They also help clean up the locker rooms and stuff after the day is over.

Oh, okay.


We don't have a public pool here.

Many people hire teens to lifeguard their pools at their own homes for parties.

Are these teens actually qualified/certified as lifeguards? I have hired teens to help me out at parties, but never in a position where they might have to give CPR or something!

I have never hired one personally, but if I did, I would want them to have taken a class.

I don't think it's so much of a trust issue at the middle school ages.

I had to leave my dd home alone just a couple of weeks ago. She had a church retreat until 2:15 and I picked her up and had to go back to work. She was home for about 2 hours by herself. She was thrilled to be left alone.
