Think about that... 21seconds... while you've just sat down to breastfeed your baby, the siblings have just flown out the back door. Not realising baby is in tow. The kids go one way to the bikes while the baby goes straight to the pool. Up and over in 21 seconds.

READ AND UNDERSTAND THIS POST BFORE COMMENTING AND WATCHING THE VIDEO.THIS NOT A POOL FENCE !!!!!!!I LOVE DIFFERENT OPINIONS HOWEVER IF YOU HAVE NOTHING NICE TO SAY DONT SAY IT OR YOU WILL BE DELETED Sorry this is longwinded but definitely worth the read if you care about your babies.You wanna know how DROWNINGS occur THIS IS HOW! I am reposting this video as I stupidly bought into uneducated trolls and just realised you cant fix stupid.After much deliberation I am reposting this because I refuse to have another child drown before every parent has had a chance for my beautiful 2 year old son to educate them. To teach parents just how quick and clever 2 year old can be who was only 1 a few months ago.I understand people are going to be passionate about this as it is terribly confronting but I feel it has to be shown. We are in the middle of renovating and clearing out our backyard intending to eventually put a pool in where we used to store wood. Our above standard high fence is essentially higher than the australian standard.We are aware the gate has issues such as (goes inward not springloaded etc ) and had every intention of correcting this even though it would not make a difference to the outcome.Please UNDERSTAND this is NOT a POOL FENCE. After this we have decided it is best not to put a pool in until he is swimming confidently.He climbed this once for the 1st time a few minutes beforehand i was really mad told him off and dragged him away from there then i thought about how quick he was and couldnt stop thinking about those gorgeous little lives taken and i figured if he did it again im gonna film it this is waaay to important to just keep telling him off and dragging him away.I want him to teach us, to mean something.This video shows he can scale and open the gate in 21 seconds unassissted no chairs,tables or bikes to stand on .Think about that 21seconds.While you've just sat down to breastfeed your baby the siblings have just flown out the back not realising baby is in tow.The kids go one way to the bikes baby goes straight to the pool up and over in 21 seconds gone no splash nothing.As vigilant as we like to think we all are and would love to be when you add extra risks like unpredictable siblings,friends,environment it gets beyond your control accidents will happen. Haters are gonna hate and I accept that if my baby can teach us all one thing we can learn from screw the haters hate away. 21 seconds This is beyond alarming.Please share let these babies know we care xo I AM GATHERING THE MESSAGES OF BABIES THAT WE'VE LOST TO MAKE CHANGES TO PREVENT THESE ACCIDENTS FROM HAPPENING.There alot of messages on here but my friends are tagging me in them.I will get to answer you as soon as I can.Thankyou for sharing and trusting your stories with me I really really appreciate it.Changes need to be made xoxoPosted by Wendy Atkinson on Tuesday, January 10, 2017
