    Another "Oh gee, I forgot my baby was in the car" death. I really am disgusted by these stories and how much agony this poor baby went through. Disgusting.

    Dang. I am trying to understand how this happens. I was a nanny for several years, but I don't have children of my own. Maybe I'm a bit hyper vigilant about safety since the kids weren't mine? I'm just trying to understand how this could occur.
    I do have a dear friend who was attending church for the first time after giving birth to her 3rd child. He was a tiny infant. She forgot him in the car for the entire church service (90 minutes or so). It was a cool, rainy day. He's now a teenager. I didn't judge her because I know her so well, but I'm genuinely confused.

    I think one of the main reasons this keeps happening is it is men that are in the care of the child and the mothers are the usual caregivers.It is a responsibility they are not used to having. I posted in the trial thread and pointed out about some men and being easily distracted even after 5 min.

    In this particular case man left his child, but women have left children in cars as well.
    Just my opinion

    Not again another little angel lost. There must be a way to help prevent these incidents.

    There have been great suggestions from others in other threads of how to prevent this from happening. I think what needs to happen is a public service announcement each year before the weather gets hot and keep running the ad many times through the summer.

    There are some mistakes that people just cannot ever make. EVER.

    When going through safety courses you learn of things that you just cannot ever do. This is one of them. You just cannot ever ever ever ever ever ever ever ever (we get the point) let this happen.

    It is an unpardonable error that results in death and a lifetime of remorse.

    Some of the suggestions I remember from other threads was to put something like your purse or wallet (for men) near the child.

    Have to put something near them that you always take out before you exit the car. Most of us have that "thing" and usually its a cell phone these days.

    I like the idea about public service announcements. Between the umpteen million pharmaceutical ads, erectile disfunction ads, and ky jelly ads, I think some room can be made for public service announcements about leaving children in hot cars.

    Recently I saw a picture sign about remembering your children at the entrance of a store and it might have been our local walmart. Actually, there is a photo of the sign at the attached link.

    These signs should be everywhere and we should get as used to seeing them as we see restroom signs, we ID under 30 signs, heck even stop signs.

    One thing that seems to be consistent with the "genuine" accidents is that responsibility for the "forgotten child" was a break in routine. Maybe not "just" a man-thing. The opposite spouse ends up taking a child to daycare, and forgets them. A different caregiver picks up a child, child falls asleep, caregiver forgets. We can make a difference educating the ones with the break in routine and distraction issues. They have a conscience, at least. Most are good citizens and law abiding.

    However, IMO, we can never make a difference with stupid, irresponsible POS caregivers, who never should have been parents or caregivers in the first place, IMO. They are beyond help other than storing them away in prison, IMO. Caregiver intentionally gets drunk, leaves or forgets child in car. Mother going to a job interview (Shanesha Taylor- AZ) intentionally leaves babies in car, rather than rescheduling or getting a sitter. Mother goes to strip club job, leaves kid in car. Parent goes shopping, leaves kid in car. Parent goes to casino, leaves kid in car. Etc. Those are not accidents-- those situations are "on purpose." I wish we could prevent these POS adults from breeding in the first place.

    Our Walmart actually has a sign on the door that says to check to make sure you didn't leave your child in the car. It's shocking to me that we need something like this.

    Really? Wow. I think it's great that they have the sign, but I agree. Like I said in my first post up thread, I just don't understand. Yes, I suppose it makes sense that a change in routine could throw one off. I think that's what happened with my friend. But I still just can't imagine forgetting that I have a CHILD in the car! I don't mean to sound judgemental. I know that there are genuine accidents, but I don't get it. When I'm driving with kids, I'm constantly aware of every little thing I do, and those around me. I guess I just feel like whenever you have your child in your care, you should always be extra cautious.
