Can you envision accidentally leaving a baby or young child in a car all day?
I was discussing with my coworker the recent case of the father in Georgia who left his toddler in a hot car “accidentally” while he was at work all day. He supposedly forgot to drop the child off at day care.
Not to make the question about this case with its odd details like that the dad was recently Googling information on what happens when you leave a child in a hot car, but just in general, most people I talk to cannot imagine leaving a child in a car.
We talked about how when you drive to work and know you have to take the child to the day care, you know you have to drive that way first. At some point during the day, would you not realize you forgot the child?
I don’t know, I can’t imagine it. Can you? Can you imagine leaving a toddler or child in the car for the whole day?
