Distraction - Fatal Outcomes (Parents/Caregivers)
It is very important to be present and mindful of your duty as a parent. It is never okay to leave a child in a car even if you are running into a store to pick up something quick. Your single/simple item has nothing to do with anyone else who may be on the line waiting to check out. Being a parent is a huge responsibility which will come with many challenges and the priorities of life shifts into a different mode. It's no longer just about you.
Tomorrow is the first day of summer and the heat is already on. In fact, this past week there were two deaths related to parents forgetting their child in the car. While they spent their day at work, the heat was stifling the life out of the children. Needless to say, when the parent returned to the car and realize the error, the rest is indescribable.
