Don't Forget

Leaving a child in a car is easier to do than the rational human brain is willing to comprehend. The people who have done it are shocked that they did. They said that they never thought it would be their mistake to make. It's a tragic, terrible thing that any of us could do or will do. 44 children died after being left in vehicles last year, but I'm willing to bet there were thousands upon thousands of close calls. The younger the child, the easier it is to get of the car without a backwards glance. Infants are quiet and lethargic in the heat. They are probably asleep when you lock the door. Here are some things that I've read can help reduce your risk:

  • Put your bag (handbag, diaper bag, whatever) in the backseat.
  • If you (or especially dad) doesn't carry a bag, put your wallet or suit jacket in the backseat
  • Set an alarm on your phone to go off at the approximate time you'll reach your destination
