AIBU to be worried about my 12 year old son being left at a notorious dangerous river to swim all day with two friends . He was taken there today by my ex husband and I only found out from his older brother . I have been very upset as he’s not a great swimmer. I brought this up with my ex husband who basically called me an over anxious nutter and he will do what ever he feels fit.
Have you seen the previous thread about river swimming? Its national drowning prevention week 15-19th june. Theres cold water shock, bacteria and currents. You're ex husband is being extremely reckless.
It's happened now and he's ok, but I would make sure it doesn't happen again. Talk to him about the dangers of swimming in rivers - I used to kayak and I can tell you that against a strong current you have no chance.
I didn’t know anything about it and only found out when he wasn’t returned today . From what I can gather it’s shallow in parts but then goes over chest height but is known for under currents . I am so so upset and he hasn’t returned him to me tonight despite breaching a court order . I have had ongoing problems with him since we divorced 7 years ago but not where safety is concerned
