One day this week I went to the cleaners and when I got out of my car I noticed that in the car next to me there was a baby sitting in the car seat with no one watching it and the engine on! Did it ever occur to you that someone can get in to the car and drive off ?!? Yes, I waited for you to come out and timed how long you were inside for… OVER 10 minutes!!! You didn’t check on your child once!!!! Do you realize that if someone were to report you c”v, your kids can be taken away from you?!? Just for running in to get your cleaners…You can get locked up…The 30 seconds you saved by not taking your child out of the car, could cost you hours upon hours of explaining in the police station…You could have the burden of dealing with the Division of Youth and Family Services (DYFS)…even if you ran in for just 30 seconds. Please wake up!…Before it’s too late.
A father who cares.
