ABOUT 50 years ago, when our children were aged six and four, our two elderly neighbours found it hard to open childproof containers.
They solved the problem by leaving a stepladder against their side of the fence. They would ascend this, shout for one of our children, then hand down the ‘childproof’ containers for them to open.
