I said when I started this blog that it was important to me to keep everything on a positive note- no politics, no complaining, no criticism (unless constructive, of course- which would give me room to criticize just a little...). I've done pretty well so far, but now something is really bothering me.
The Wall Street Journal and other papers have been recently reporting that more children have been left to die in hot cars this year than ever before. Sad? Yes. Devastating? Yes. But there's something even sadder, in my opinion, which may not result in the death of your child, but still has dire consequences. It's the tip one article suggested for making certain that this tragedy never happens to you- that you never get in your car after work to discover your baby has died from heat, that you never have to face your spouse with this news, that you never have to face life knowing that your precious baby is dead because of your negligence (yes, I had to use the word negligence).
Here's the tip: Place your purse, briefcase, laptop or other important item you'll need for the day in the backseat with your child so that you'll be certain to check there before you exit the car!
Please tell me there's not a parent out there who's more likely to forget their child than their laptop!
Our children are our most valuable assets. Please protect and cherish them accordingly. Thanks for listening!
