Don't Turn Your Back and Mind Your Own Business!
Hello friends! I started to write a post before this one but this topic is too important to ignore. Last summer I wrote a post with a odd title called "Where's Your Baby?" I wrote about the dangers of leaving young children alone in hot cars. Today I read in our local news that a child died after being left alone in a hot car. This is the second one to die in two days according to the news report. That's two babies too many! One baby is too many!
So ladies I'm encouraging you to not mind your own business! If you are walking in a parking lot don't be afraid to look at the cars you walk by. I'm not saying you need to go look inside each car. If you see a car seat make sure it's empty. If you see a little one alone in a car, call 911 immediately and get help from a passerby. If the parent shows up before help arrives, let them know the authorities have been notified. Take their license number if needed especially if they are angry about you "Getting into their business ".
Remember! There is absolutely NO EXCUSE for leaving a child in a car by themselves! None! Zero! Zip!
