I think I read that there was also a third child in the car. In any case, I still don't understand how a parent can forget that his/her children have been left in a car for a such long period of time.

They have been telling people for years to put your cell phone, purse, briefcase and lunch in the backseat so you have to look back there. I really don’t understand how this happens but since it does people need to heed this advice.

I think that's a good idea. And with Bluetooth technology, there is no reason for you to have your phone up in the front with you anyway.

Eh, it's been explained a hundred times how it happens. When it comes to doing a task, the non-emotional part of the brain in charge of remembering to do tasks doesn't differentiate between "drop the kids at daycare" and "take out the garbage". They are both just things that have to be done, and things that have to be done can be forgotten when one is distracted or tired or sick or a regular routine is disrupted in some way.

And if that makes you screech indignantly, "But a BABY is not the GARBAGE", then you totally fail to grasp the concept.

The reason "put the cell phone in the back with the baby" will work has nothing to do with a cell phone being more important than a baby, but that there's a good chance that the task called "Take your cell phone with you" will be remembered, and then you will say, "OH CRAP, I FORGOT TO DROP OFF THE BABY!!!!!!"

Now if it is found that the father didn't just forget but left the kids in the car on purpose or was in some way impaired, that would be a different story. I understand he has been charged with manslaughter, which is usually the procedure.

When these things happen, I often wonder how many times in cooler weather a parent didn't come out to his or her car at the end of the day to find a crying, smelly, hungry kid, and almost have a heart attack. I bet they never tell about that.
