He forgot to drop him at daycare

It’s been a very long, hot summer and sadly with the high temperatures we’ve seen, we’ve also seen an increase in child deaths due to being forgotten in hot cars.

I know that as parents we’re busy and we get distracted sometimes, but I can’t for the life of me understand how parents and caregivers can forget a child in a car for an ENTIRE DAY?! Just this week another child has died after being forgotten by his father, and this time the dad is facing charges.

How does this keep happening?
