Children die in hot cars every year. Tragically some of the parents that made this mistake believed it would never happen to them and yet they became overwhelmed, distracted and forgot their child. How do you forget your child? The parent that doesn't usually drop their child off, the summer routine is changed, the baby falls asleep... whatever the situation we would like to share a few steps to keep your precious cargo safe. Day cares are required to follow procedures to prevent leaving a child behind. When those procedures are not followed children have been placed in danger, left alone sleeping in the back of the van. It is especially important that you insist that if your child's care giver or grandparents transport your child they set up a procedure to help them remember they have a little one to safe guard. Your car can be deadly after 10 min. even with the windows cracked. Also, please don't forget our heat will also kill your precious pets. Never leave a pet unattended in a vehicle. Please share this post with parents, grandparents and caregivers.
