Ok I see a few posts about cars and kids. I want to know why everyone is freaking out. If I go to a convenience store, CAR RUNNING, ac on full blast, lock the doors to my car, go into the convenience store and I can see my car and all doors and everything that could happen to my vehicle or my child what is this obsession that this is wrong?????

It's not something I would EVER do. 

But to each their own.

I don't see that as a problem, although it was never much of an issue here (western WA, where most of the year it is NOT sunny, even in the summer, and rarely over 60 degrees).

When your child was an infant you always unstrapped her out of the car seat or brought lo's car seat in with you? You didn't take the time to find that store to feel safe within eye sight to pump gas at???

I don't even do that. For one thing, I only have one key so I can't lock all the doors and leave the car on.

And it's not that big of a deal to bring him in. It's an extra 2 minutes.

It only takes a few seconds for someone to break into your car and drive off.

I've done it. I try to go to gas stations where you pay at the pump but once in awhile I forget. I have twins and when they were babies, it was a lot of work to get both seats out, carry them both in just to slap some money on the counter. So I would pump gas, pull up front, run in and hand her the money even if there was someone else in line. I'd just say"sorry, babies in car gotta run!" The lady there knows who I am and she was fine with that.
