We need to practice summer safety, it is not safe to leave children in a car during any time of the year. Part of parenting is to make sure our children are safe, at all times. How can you live with yourself if your child dies because of your negligence? When the body dies no one can bring it back to life, it is that simple. There is a plethora of terrible true stories about children left in a hot car by their parent, during a triple digit weather, where the end of the story is tragic and undeniable loss of the child. The best advise to avoid this problem is a simple one. Do not do it, do not leave your child in the car, it is a safety issue and a love issue. Love your child, keep him or her safe, keep them where you can see them all the time. Children are a precious gift, and a blessing from God. We must take good care of them. Let us be responsible, loving, careful, jealous in the good sense of the word, compassionate, patient, take our children with us wherever we go as long as is appropriate. If you must leave them, leave them with someone trustworthy and with good common sense, to at all cost avoid harm.
