    Drew, that's a touching story.
    There was a case here many years ago about a young boy, without a driver license, who had taken his mother's car for a drive without permission into an area with low speed limit (which he didn't obey), and hit a small child who without anybody noticing had passed through the garden fence into the local street. The child was badly injured. The dr ...[text shortened]... r was charged and punished for driving the car without a license and not respecting the speed limit.
    Years ago I glanced into my front garden to see my neighbour’s 2 year old little boy standing between 2 parked cars, gazing out at the stream of cars that were rushing by. My blood ran cold as I rushed out to get him. My neighbour had been chatting to his accountant, not realising that his son had awoken from a doze and had wandered out. Strangely enough my neighbours at my earlier house had lost a 2 year old in a similar way.

    When I was 18 and at a small house party I looked out the back window and watched a 3 year old walk into the pool.
    I went out and he was submerged. I pulled him out and explained to everyone what happened but they were too drunk and high to take it seriously.
    The next day I told the mother what happened and she said "oh he's fine" in a tone of irritation.

    Incredible that she thought so lightly of it! These days more parents are aware of the risks and homes are safer places. We all messed about with electricity at home, changing plugs as kids or extending wires with sellotape. My mum once pulled a live wire from my brother’s hand, he was paralysed and foaming at the mouth! Another brother asked my mum why the clothes iron was making such a funny noise? He’d placed it in a bath of water while it was switched on. Amazing that the 6 of us are all still alive, aged 76 - 63! 😀

    LoL true.
    When I was a kid parents just wanted you out of the house at any age. Just get out and play.
    The kid in the pool was way back when people didn't focus on safety like they do now.
