  1. “put something of importance in the back”???? your child??? please help me understand why a pocketbook is more important than a child? please?

  2. I’ve asked the same question many times! The most reasonable answer is that many times it is the parent who does not normally drop the child off who forgets the child because s/he is not used to it, i.e. the mother normally drops off the child and when the father is supposed to be dropping him off, he automatically drives to where he normally goes and forgets the child, out of habit. THAT is why the advice is to put something of value – or just something that you normally take along – in the back, i.e. the father will put his tallis bag in the backseat because he is used to taking that out of the car.

  3. -Leaving the air conditioner on is also a danger. Owning a “new” vehicle does not make it any safer. Cars are running on mechanics and computers, which can malfunction without warning.

    -Having the car windows opened will not make that much of a difference in this weather.

    -Parking in a shaded area is not a safe alternative either.

    -Also, even if you will only be stepping out for a “moment,” a child can C’V get heat stroke within minutes.

    Have a safe and joyous summer!

    *Wishing the child a quick recovery.

  4. A child is the most important item. A life can not be replaced , contents of a purse do not compare in anyway to a life.

    Too many children are forgot about due to sheer neglect, BH this one made it.

  5. Meir Lichtenstein is such a wonderful person in addition to being well spoken and level headed.
    I hope the father/kids doesn’t get put through grinder over this.

  6. People are cretures of habit. When someone is tired and off schedule nad 7 things on their mind its easy to forget a sleeping child in the back seat. This is not neglagince. There was a whole writeup in paranting magazine on this problem.

  7. why are ppl still talkin about this this story is probbaly posted here just so u can learn a lesson here.. learn the lesson and thats it it was a MISTAKE! YOU NEVER KNOW HOW AND WHY IT HAPPENED

  8. I see you removed my posting asking about a NJ Law for leaving kids in the car. I believe one was passed. However, I shall never know if such a law was passed as you removed my posting asking about it.

  9. small children left outside unattended…youngsters who can barely walk teeterring while stading in grocery carts..and sleeping children babysat by nursery moniters while mommy goes on an errand.when will this irresponsibility end? hashem rewards us with these trusting souls. please,p;ease protect them.


  10. I always wonder, are children really safer being taken out when the parents step out for a minute. Think about it, are they not risking more by being taken out of the car or house, rather than stay inside themself for that moment. I know you sometimes hear horror stories, but that is because it’s not common, maybe 1 in 100,000. But children hit or run over by cars are much more common, and hence have less publicity.
    Just thinking….
