Do you ground your five year old?

My five year old got in the pool without his life jacket when I specifically told him not to.  A friend of mine was watching him but she didn't make him put his life jacket on.  (lesson:  NEVER have someone else watch your kid at a pool!)  He is grounded from playing with his friends and tv.  I just can't decide how long I should ground him.  Or, if I should ground him at all.  I just want him to know how serious it is to get in the pool without me and without a life jacket.
