    This was a suggestion (my daughter’s actually!) If you have a young child alone on the back seat, place your wallet, cell phone, Blackberry, briefcase, purse etc next to the child. That way there’s a good chance you’ll need it soon after leaving the car & drivers can hurry back.

    These accidents happen every year. Each one is avoidable.

    tragic!!

    this is soo sad. and unfortunate. PARENTS do not leave ur kids alone in car. period.

    there are so many times i go on kingston ave and hear babies crying in cars. i feel like smashing the window and taking them out, i should.

    u cannot rely on storeowners or passerbys to keep on eye on ur children no matter WHAT THE WEATHER IS!! no matter how inconvenient it may be to take kid out of carseat for even a 1 min stop.

    Better waste a minute of ur life then a life in a minute!!!!!!

    It is not an issue of what is “more important” – obviously a child means everything and is most important to a parent . Parents would do ANYTHING for their children. However, let’s not forget that we are human after all. While most of us send our children to school and communicate with them only BEFORE and AFTER they get back from school, we make and receive phone calls ALL day. That said, even if C”V a parent forgets a child, at some point or another they are likely to make a phone call and realize that they left their… Read more »

    Please keep in mind when posting a non complimentary comment that sometimes the grieving families read this site or people close to them and it adds additional pain.
    Do not judge another person. This could happen to anyone, even the best parent.

    They have car seat alarms to avoid these things from happening. More than 200 kids die every year from being left in a car seat for too long.
    Here is the link to the article about the car seat alarms:

    I’M SURE THIS SHVARTSMAN WOMAN IS GOING THRU HER OWN HELL OVER THIS, BUT IT TELLS ME THAT I WOULD BE PETRIFIED TO TRUST MY CHILD IN THE CARE OF A PERSON WHO RUNS A DAY CARE AND CAN FORGET A CHILD AND NOT REALIZE THAT HE’S MISSING FROM HER DAY CARE ALL DAY. IF I HAD BEEN SENDING MY CHILD THERE HE WOULD NOT BE GOING THERE ANYMORE AFTER THIS.

    This boy was probably not in her classroom. Yes this is a MAJOR tragedy, but accidents happen and that’s why a teacher should be taking count of the children many times throughout the day! Schools should also call parents whenever a child is absent unexpectedly (not on a pre-known/planned vacation)! I’v heard of children falling a sleep and not coming off the bus to school in the morning!

    #1’s idea is great. I know it didn’t happen here, but like #2 said – people should be careful not to conciously leave children in the car!
