Today is National Child Vehicular Heatstroke Prevention Day. That might sound like a mouthful, but it’s an important topic. Summer hasn’t even officially begun yet, but almost every day there have been news stories about children being rescued from hot cars—and about children who were not able to be rescued. Just the other day, it happened to the son of a New York police officer.
If you think you’re too good a parent to accidentally leave a child in a hot car, you’re wrong. We posted a piece two weeks ago about how this kind of thing can—and does—happen to loving, attentive parents. If you haven’t read it, it’s worth a look. If you have read it, read it again and share it with people who claim it can never happen to them.
