Parenting 000: Did YOU Forget Your Child?!?!?
June 23, 2014
Approximately 62 children die each year because they were left in a car during the sweltering heat of summer. The excuses are abhorring!
“My child fell asleep and I forgot he was there.”
“I had so much on mind that I ran into work forgetting to drop my child off at daycare.”
“I didn’t want to disturb her while she slept and I knew I’d only be a minute.”
“He was having such a fit that I left him in the car until he calmed down.”
Are any of these excuses worth the life of a child? We all need to be more responsible. We are the care-givers of children. They depend on us to make good choices for them – they can’t do it on their own.
Let’s all be more vigilant this summer. As you walk through a parking lot, keep your eyes open to cars parked with car seats. Make sure they are empty. If not and you see a child, CALL for help immediately! NEVER HESITATE!!! A child’s life is at stake!
