The dangers of having a father


By Ruth Griffin

Father and daughter relationships are a vital asset in creating a positive home environment.

Yet being around an accident prone father can prove more dangerous than a visit to the supermarket, especially when there’s tools involved.

An innocent 17-year-old, Rhiannon Child recalls her childhood memories as a 9-year-old with her father potentially causing some serious damage.

It all started with a home DIY project in a garage – shelves specifically.

She passed her father the spanner, proud of her efforts, and says she continued to watch in awe.

“He accidentally bumped the spanner and it fell and hit me directly on the head,” she says.

“I didn’t even cry or anything.

“I said ‘That hurt, what the hell Dad?”

Being an assistant proved more dangerous than first thought.
