Children Forgotten in the Car
I was reading through Dr. Laura’s blog recently and came upon this article called “Children ‘Forgotten’ in Overheated Cars.” I really had a hard time understanding how this could happen.
How could someone “forget” their child in the car and why would a parent leave his or her child in the car, especially if the weather outside is freezing cold or extremely hot? I just can’t grasp the concept of how a mother or a father could “forget” his or her child!
Some of the children who were forgotten in the cars even died. They weren’t all left by mothers or fathers, some were left by caregivers as well.
It is a reminder to parents and caregivers everywhere of how important and fragile these precious, little children are. Let’s take care of them – they depend on us!
