Do you leave your kids in a running car?

With the weather getting cold do you leave your kids and jump out of your warm running car into the cold to get your mail?

If you do please read this. This mom had the best intentions and both of her babies are dead. http://www.myfoxstl.com/myfox/pages/Home/Detail?contentId=7759040&version=2&locale=EN-US&layoutCode=VSTY&pageId=1.1.1

  • The only time That i ever left my son (who is 7 months) in the car was about two weeks ago, and it was just to push the cart into the cart corral which i always park next to. Now that he is in a "big boy" car seat, I dont do it. .

  • Mine are older 6, 8 and 12, so I do now, but never when they were younger. Something I never did. But once, I ran across a question that made me think: Would you leave your purse on the front seat with $500 in it and run in real quick? No? Then kids shouldn't be left either!

  • i have before but here is what happened. i put my girl in her carseat and strapped her in. i realized i left my phone in the house. but i knew right where it was. i left her car door opened, ran into the house and ran out. i wasnt away for a minute AND my neighbors were outside right by the car. that is the only time ever! i will even park at the end of the parking lot by one of those places you put the cart just to make sure that i will be right be the car taking the cart back.
