What We Found
Learning to see with new eyes and to reassess what’s important.
Universally, when children are born, parents become aware that caring for this tiny person is a huge task with massive responsibility for which there has been little or no training.
We often see time-poor parents rushing after their children to scoop them up before they break a valuable ornament, chew on a power cord or head for the stairs.
We often see household situations which have been fine for years but now, with the arrival of a new child, pose dangerous risks. It’s hard, even for the most attentive and caring parents, to see these long-standing “normal” household conditions as unsafe for the child.
From ABS figures, we know that more children die of injury than of cancer and asthma combined. From data published by Kidsafe Australia, we know that each year over 150 Australian children (aged 0-14 years) are killed and over 68,000 are hospitalised as a result of preventable injuries.
From our years of experience, we know that when you reassess your circumstances with fresh eyes, you will be amazed by what has gone unobserved and by what you then want to change immediately.
