Summer is coming up and it is important to take caution. Even mild summer can heat your car up dangerously. If you leave your child in your car during such days, he will suffocate and die!
Sometimes it so happens that your child is in the backseat and you get caught up with your own. Only recently, a parent left his 13-month-old child in the car and went off to work, forgetting to drop her in daycare. That mistake cost him the life of his girl. She spent the whole day in the car and died of heat stroke. Such hazardous mistakes need to be avoided at all costs and we have a few tips to help you with that:
- Keep important stuff in your backseat, which will force you to check the backseat before you leave the car. Employee ID, purse, briefcase, and shoes are some examples.
- Make it a habit to always check the backseat before leaving the car. You may feel stupid doing that every time even when your child isn’t there but we are sure you’d rather feel stupid a couple of times than risk the life of your child.
- Ask someone – your child’s daycare authorities or your babysitter – to check in if your child doesn’t arrive per schedule.
We know times are stressful but surely, nothing is more important than your child. Take backup steps and be vigilant.
