Revisiting leaving children in a car.

Ev - posted on 06/23/2016 ( 1 mom has responded )




I am seeing a lot of articles about people who have left their kids in cars to run into the store or in one case a father was in such a hurry to have a nap he forgot his infant in his van and slept for four hours before he remembered her. I am listing links to the stories. What are your thoughts on them and would you leave a kid in the car?

I have no problem leaving a kid in the car while I duck in and pay for fuel, or put something in the post box, or something like that. As long as I can see the car and I'm literally only going to be a few moments. But other than that? No. Not when they are young. As they got older, yes. But even now, with my 11 year old, I won't let her stay in the car if it is hot.
