There are always stories about parents leaving the kids in the car. Not all of the stories have happy endings. I read an article on Yahoo by a mom who actually did this and she got caught. Her kids had been sick and one had gone to school that day. She had been up all night with the little one and was not feeling good herself for lack of sleep. When she picked up her other child, he got sick before leaving the school. She decided to go to the store and get a few things; and instead of taking the kids with her inside to get the items needed, she leaves them in the car with the windows down some and the sun roof open to let in air on a cloudy 60ish degree day. When she returned 15 minutes later there were cops and people gathered around the car. The man that was there with the cops told them as he was questioned that he had been by the car for 30 minutes and she told the cops she was gone 15. She was told the temp in the car had gotten to 85 and she swears it could not have gotten that high. They questioned her and then cited her. She had visits from child protection and had to comply to different things for three months. To me that was not wise move on her part. So what do you think?
