I posted an article —Okay to Leave Kids in the Car While Popping into a Store?–on my Facebook that has created, kind of, a controversy.
The question is, is it acceptable to leave your children in the car while you run an errand?
Some felt that this is okay, normal even, and do it all the time–with the caveat that it’s never for an extended period of time, moms can sometimes even see the car, they felt the area was safe, etc. Some felt that you should just never ever leave your kids alone in a car because horrible things could happen. Some felt that any moms who do this should be criminally prosecuted.
What do you think? Commentary and reasoning is appreciated–name calling and slandering isn’t. 🙂
