A young mom has revealed why she wont baby-proof her home and insists children should learn from their mistakes.”
Abby Plested lives in Auckland, New Zealand, with her husband, Dan, and their two children, Houston, 3, and 3-month-old Goldie Grace.
Plested, 23, who runs the lifestyle blog Honey We Are More, has given a candid insight into her unconventional parenting methods.
Discussing how she continues her Pinterest-worthy home looking so beautiful, she told Stuff.co.nz: Dont baby proof. Let them read and they wont do it again.
Her modern home is fitted with bohemian-inspired medals such as giant cacti, big wicker pots, and hanging Moroccan baskets.
Plested told Daily Mail Australia why she has never installed certain safety features.
Sure there is a place and a need to baby proof some parts of your home however, I think you can get over the top with it, she said.
I have never set baby gates up in my home or stairs because I think its important for the baby to read frontiers without these.
Yes, it means you have to watch your baby more but you are most likely doing that anyway.
For example, I have cactus in my home, and Houston touched it once and he will never run near them again. Trust me.
However, there is one item Plested wont have with children around the house.
I would love a glass dining table, but its only not practical with two young children, she told Stuff.
All the stickiness and fingerprints would actually make it look far worse than its potential to look good.
Plested does, however ensure, that all of her reflects, closets and shelves are properly affixed so there is no danger of them falling.
Her home is fitted with DIY programmes she has curated herself, “and its” decorated applying a palette of vibrant, funky colors.
