child protection

  • grandparents

    It is important to note the difference between an order for care and one for contact.

    Quite a few years ago; and before the new Children's Act came into being; I was involved in a matter in the High Court in Cape Town where a grandmother wanted to exercise rights of access to her two grandchildren but because of an argument with her daughter, the mother of the children, she was being denied access to her grandchildren, Quite rightly she was not prepared to let that happen and took her daughter to the High Court in an Application to get a court order allowing her access to her grandchildren and she got such an order; which was unusual at the time for the reasons given below.

    I remembered this case when I got the following inquiry in this last week which is in a similar vein and the facts were strangely similar.

    However, there are certain safety requirements which must be complied with.

    What are they?

    A swimming pool can represent a very real safety risk, and many a swimming pool owner has experienced a near drowning.

    It is for this reason that the legislature has seen fit to provide regulations that govern the safe operation of swimming pools.
