    I remember reading an article about how easy something like this can happen, even to good parents-something about how your memory works regarding your usual routine, and when it is changed, how easy it is to forget that there is a child in the car. Most of the time I see this when the child is taken to daycare by someone else, who does not usually have the child in the morning, etc.
    It is tragic for everyone involved.

    How do you not miss a child in your care for 8 hours?

    ''But as child-welfare groups try to prevent more deaths with information campaigns and as inventors work on technical fixes, both efforts founder on a hard reality: Good parents donít think it can happen to them.

    It can, experts and statistics say...''
