I was commended for doing something all parents should do...

I took DD out of the car and into the gas station to pay for my gas. I never leave her in the car for anything unless someone else is in the car so I can leave it running. 

A man came up and commended me for taking her in. While I'm happy he commended me, I find it sad that he normally sees parents leave their children in the car.

I always took my daughter in with me, if I needed to. If my oldest dd was in the car, I'd give her the keys and she'd wait with her sister. I never went inside. I always paid at the pump. She knows how to lock and unlock the car. Thankfully my husband takes care of putting gas in my car. I never get off now, or pump gas.

If I don't pay at the pump I take both my kiddos in with me. It kills me to see people leave their kids in the car!

In California they have cash pay at the pump stations. They need them everywhere!

I try to do this when I have the kids so I don't have to take 2 kids inside to pay. If it's just me it's no big deal but I always take the kids inside if I have to pay inside.

I worked at a gas station/convenience store a few years ago, before dd was born and people left their babies and kids in the car ALL THE TIME. They would cut in line or just stand there demanding to be waited on first because their baby or kids were in the car alone. I can't even tell you how many people I kicked out of the store for that. One mom left her kids in the truck with it still running and one of them hopped in the driver seat and drove the truck *through the store*! Scared the crap out of me, glass shattered everywhere!

I've never seen anyone leave their kids in the car.
