What users are saying ...

“I wish this had come sooner. I love that my son is doing rowing but I don’t love the early training drop off. Sharing that pain is a great idea!”
— Dad of 2, St Kilda
“I love the Parachuute idea. I always feel guilty asking for people to drive my kids around and worry that I won’t be able to reciprocate fairly. The model works really well for me because it helps me fill up my 7-seater easily when I am able to drive”
— Mum of 4, Caulfield
“Can we do that thing again mum with the team? It was so much fun doing car karaoke when you took everyone to badminton”
— 12yo badminton enthusiast, Elwood
“We liked that Mum stayed for all of NetSetGo instead of going to the start of our brothers’ basketball game”
— 7yo & 9yo Netballers, Hawthorn
