Forgetting Our Children

Once again we are hearing about children being left in  over heated cars. What is it that we are so busy doing , that we forget our child in a car or anywhere? Communication seems to be lacking and more concern about how we look what we are going to wear or sleeping until the last minute, causing a mad rush out the door.

From where I sit in my car I can see something as big as a toddler's car seat. Are you using the car seat? When ever transporting a child, I would think you would look into the rear view mirror to check on them. I just don't get it.

Did another person put the child into the car and you were not aware of their action?  Even so, I would think that the mother and father would double check before leaving home as to who was doing what concerning the child. 

A single person having put a child into the car, can in no way forget putting the child into the car.
Are parents becoming a hazard to their children?

For those that have experienced this tragedy, I suggest you try to help others avoid this unspeakable lost.
Tell others what occurred that caused you to make such a hurtful oversight.

My heart goes out to the little ones that went to Heavens Playground.

Help to prevent this tragedy from happening to other children.

People should have common sense to remember they left their child in the car. Do you mean that they forget their child is in the car while they go in somewhere to shop and someone grabs them from the car and kidnaps them why they go to heaven? I think that is awful for any parent to do that. And you always need to have a child in a car seat until a certain age. Just a fact of having some brains.
And you never leave a child in a hot car during the middle of the summer. People frown on that. My girls are older now, and if they happen to be with me when I need to go mail a package and they don't want to come in, I always lock them in just to be safe and I know I'm usually going to be just a few minutes.

Hi Jennifer,
Thank you for leaving a comment. I was referring to the four or five children that were left in the car 8 hours because the parent forgot that they were in the car and went into their place of employment and did not come out until they were off of work.

Due to the extreme heat these children died. All of these were individual cases that happen this summer.
Some of the dads of these children said they forgot or they didn't know the child was in the car.
So sad.
