    Unhappy So devastating *contains upsetting information*

    Another warning about toddler safety from me unfortunately



    Last night a little boy from DD2's childcare and part of DD1's school family was hit by a car and passed away this morning. He was with his family and ran off out of the school gate straight onto a very busy main road. He was only 4.

    My heart goes out to his poor family, his mum who was with him and the driver who hit him. RIP little man.

    Please remember to keep hold of your children around roads and drill the road safety aspect until you are blue in the face. It only takes a split second and they are gone.

    i read your FB status and then seen the news report. My heart hurts. It's terrible to hear of such a horrible tragedy. I think it is hitting home for me moreso because you know them

    My thoughts are with the family, the driver and their family, and with your community Nai

    That is so sad It can happen so easily, can't it? Just last weekend my 4yo DS was chasing a balloon at a party in a park an there was a car backing out from a driveway across the road from the park. I would like to think that DS would have stopped at the road anyway without a heap of us yelling at him to stop and running to grab him, but you just never know.

    My thoughts are with everyone touched by the loss

    How terrible

    I always get that feeling of panic when I see a little one near a road without their parents holding their hand.

    RIP little one.

    The Man told me about this tragedy as he was driving the kids and I to the local festival to be in the parade with child care. I couldn't believe it. I thought about it the whole time that we were standing on the road waiting for the parade to begin.

    My deepest condolences for everyone around this little darling.

    absolutely tragic.

    Sometimes it is so hard to get ourselves out of the mentality that it wont happen to us.

    RIP little man, our thoughts and prayers are with him, his fmaily and friends and the driver of the car.
