      Where are all the children?

      We have been in Australia for 6 weeks and I can't get over how few children we have seen 'playing out.' Are lots of people on holiday?? Is everyone indoors a lot?? or out and about with OSH clubs?? We've just moved to Woodcroft and aparently it has one of the biggest primary schools in SA, so where are all the children?

      They must be about. I was in Perth 2 years ago and didn't even have to look before I crossed the road! Its like a ghost town but I suppose we have so many people on so little land here. Maybe knock on your neighbours doors and intro yourselves?

      its the same near us, local park is always empty. Occasionally a few kids on bikes on the streets, think they go to each others houses and noone seems to walk anywhere they always drive.

      My two get on really well and play great together but after 6 weeks with only the two of them, they're desperate to get to school and meet some new friends
