Why is this happening so much!? How sad!
I honestly don't get it. How can a dad or mom forget about their kids? Its like they forget they have kids? and some I guess don't want to go thru the trouble of getting them out of the car seat? Its crazy!
I have a hard time leaving my kids to sleep in the car at home. I do admit I have left them in the car buckled while I run a package in the post office, but I can see them the entire time and I know they are there.
I don't understand it, either. The first time I heard of this happening was a few years ago. Mom started a new job. She loaded her 2-yr-old into the SUV and drove straight to work, forgetting to drop her daughter off at the sitter's. (She even stopped for doughnuts on the way.) She was so distraught when somebody discovered her daughter. Unfortunately, it was too late. The Prosecutor decided not to press charges against her. Well, you know how newspapers are these days, more gossip than news. An article claimed that she' gotten into the habit of leaving her kids in the car. At the previous school where she'd worked, several parents complained about this.
How can someone forget their child or a child is in the car when you put them there in the first place. It doesn't make sense.
