How can you forget to drop your grandchild off at day care. There is no excuse for her actions and she should be held accountable for her actions to the fullest extent of the law. My prayers are with the rest of the family as they deal with the crisis. I think they call that murder

You mean there are three year old children that remain quiet to the point that they don't make a noise or comment at any time in a car?

When my kids were three years old, they wouldn't keep quiet about anything. I would never forget they were in the back seat.

What saddens me is the torture the child went through. Read up on topics like heat exhaustion and heat stroke and imagine how it would feel suffering those symptoms.

Although it doesn't diminish the severity, a baby wouldn't quite suffer the same way in a similar instance. A three year old has a degree of self awareness and can experience fear and discomfort in a different way than babies. Trapped in a hot car for hours, alone, with no relief in sight. Even more so if they couldn't remove the straps from the child seat. That is torture in my opinion.

I agree with Peaches and Brundle's comments. I have other things to say... but God is the one to judge, not me.

Everytime I read a story about someone leaving a child in a car they say the same thing. I forgot to drop him at day care. These kids that keep getting forgotten, must the most well behaved kids that there ever was. When my kids get in the car, whether one, two, or all 3, they talk my ear off. I am constantly looking in the rear view and watching them. I talk to them if the are quiet for to long. If I stop, I take them in the place with me. If I go thru a drive thru, I let them pick out what they want. I am not buying this excuse, "I FORGOT TO DROP THEM OFF AT DAYCARE" anymore. TRY THIS B-ITCH FOR MURDER!

I think the way we live as a society has something to do with both these tragedies this week.

We need to take the damn cell phone of our head and pay attention to people around us and whether or not we have a kid in the car!

start talking to our neighbors saying hi to people around us and make eye contact every once in a while.
