Making a home safe for children.

Young children just learning to crawl create a new challenge for parents.  Parents don’t want to restrict or limit their child’s ability to explore their world, so the question on how to create a safe environment comes up. A parent’s concern to keep the home safe for their little ones can be daunting. Luckily, there are some easy safeguards like safety door handles, safety locks and socket caps.

 

One of our clients, however, experienced an additional challenge.  Our client who owns and plays an upright bass, keeps it in their home. He found it necessary to secure the large and potentially dangerous instrument from his baby.

Our organizing & design studio team found a solution to keep this part of their home safe. Our first thought was to purchase one of those guitar braces, but we couldn’t find one large enough to keep the soft case and bass together. We ended up designing one and installing it in their home ourselves.  Our welder put it together and installed it easily in the part of the home where children won’t play.  Now, their lil’ one is free to roam without the threat of hurting himself.  Mom and dad can feel assured that they did their best to secure their house and make it a learning environment instead of a obstacle course.

  

They’re making an impact. A kid’s project in Northern California

I just got this great message from a librarian in Northern California saying that her students have been working on a project and came across our links and resources page. They found it useful and said they will be sharing it with their community. Here’s what they wrote:

“I just wanted to take the time to send you a quick thank you note on behalf of my library class and myself for providing the resources on your page (http://mop-ds.com/Organizing-links-and-resources.php). They just put together an environmental outreach project for the community, and found your page to be such a great reference – so from all of us, thank you for your help :)

 

I have always wanted this resource to be helpful to people. I am so grateful as well that they are able to use it as it is intended. Here’s my reply to Ms. Potter and her students.

“There are so many ways to start organizing. Clearing out clutter is the first step. Learning how to Recycle, Repurpose, Reuse is a great skill to have. I find that most people just don’t know what to do with their unwanted “stuff”, so they let it build up to the point it becomes a problem. I am happy that your students are working on this. They will have an advantage by knowing what to do when they are ready to donate or recycle. Thank you for your efforts as well.”

These students will make an impact on their community by teaching others while also saving our environment by protecting it. What more I can say to them? but say “Good Going”.
