This is the leading reason an average of 38 children die per year - a frazzled, busy parent forgot the child was in the backseat? (Oh, and the press has deemed this "rare;" 38 dead children a year is...rare.)
Some news programs actually provided tips last week - tips for helping to remind you that the child you made, the life you created, is sleeping soundly in the backseat of your car, if not goo-goo-gah-ing? One was to put your briefcase back there, ostensibly because work is important enough to remember, but the child isn't.
It's beyond appalling. It's beyond sickening. Hear me full tirade on this subject HERE: http://bit.ly/W3t77U
