I saw this article on accuweather.com about the number of children that die of hyperthermia by being forgotten in the car is on the rise. The article suggests that is may be because of rear facing child seats, that because they face backwards parents forget they have their child in the car (hope the link works).
I was outraged anyway by just the thought of leaving your child in the car alone, but do people actually forget they have their children in the car? I don't see how its possible however, people use this as their defense. So what do you think is the carseat responsible or neglectful parenting?
