Now I think that forgetting your child in the car is a travesty and that you need to do whatever it is that you possibly can to ensure that you do not forget your child in the car. However knowingly leaving your child in the car so that you can "run an errand." In the video ad, the mother is going around in a shopping cart. What can be so horrible about bringing your child into the store and having them sit in the shopping cart? I do not understand this. It in inexcusable to me.
I never go more than an arms length away from my child with my son. I never even leave his car seat uncovered. I cover his car seat with a blanket during the day so as not to have him get burned on the car seat when he gets into the car.
Here is the video, although I warn you that is is hard to watch even though it is just a re-enactment.
And here is the original article of the story. Please feel free to pass along this message to anyone who may need to watch it for a wake-up call. Or possibly even for a reminder.
