On my way in to work this morning, Shay Moore and Brian B Shynin  from KC’s Hot 103 Jamz radio station were speaking on a topic that seems to keep coming up.  I am posting this as not to be judgmental but to try and understand because I am a bit confused.  The topic is about so many individuals from different states who seem to leave kids in the cars during hot weather.  My confusion comes from the fact that I have 3 kids, I have had things on my mind many a day.  I have been tired, angry, or sad but I have never left any of my children in a hot car.  I have heard stories about people getting all the way to work not realizing their infant child is still in the car seat.  Recently, an associate of mine was just arrested for leaving a child in a hot car while her and a friend was shopping.  I worked with her in the past.  She was a sweet young girl and when her face (mug shot) flashed across my screen I was in shock.  This sounded nothing like her character at all.  Of course, we will never know the full story (truth) because we know the media can twist and turn things in their favor.  I hope that she gets through this incident and I said a prayer for her.  I am not angry at her but disappointed when I heard what had happened.  I just don’t understand how or why this happens.  If there is anyone who can shed some light on this topic so I can get a better understanding, it is appreciated.  What are your thoughts?

 

“According to KidsandCars.org, 16 children have died in hot car related deaths nationwide this year. That’s more than double the number of seven at the same time last year."
