The car, probably, has long ceased to be a luxury. With it, young mothers have become more mobile. Significantly reduced the amount of time spent on the road. However, for all the advantages you should not forget about safety. Moreover, who, if not parents, is responsible for the child?
When my friends began to acquire their second children, I was worried about the question – what to do with the youngest child, when my mother, for example, takes the older child to kindergarten? On the one hand, I do not want to wake up, but on the other hand, you will not leave the same carriage with a baby on the street.
With the machine, the question is similar, and it arises even if there is one child in the family. For example, what to do if I went with the daughter to the store, and she fell asleep on the way? Leave in the parking lot or wake up?
Honestly, I have only one option – you cannot leave a point in a car in a car without supervision. And it’s not just that he wakes up and gets scared. This is contrary to all safety rules.
What if something happens to mom? There are lots of options, from a heart attack to the notorious brick on the head.
Of course, the kids wake sorry. But I, when my daughter was small, always tried to match the trips so that I did not have to interrupt the children’s sleep. Yes, it was such that the extra half hour had to sit in the car or wind circles in the area, if only the child slept. But even thoughts did not arise about leaving the daughter in the car.
One friend of mine has a different opinion, but at least she tries to reinsure herself – she leaves the phone next to the child, while she herself calls back to him from her other number at that time, and listens to whether the son is awake.
The only possible option for me is if the car is close to me. For example, more than once it was such that I chatted with a girlfriend on the summer terrace of a cafe, and five meters away from me my daughter slept in the car and I saw her.
Some people think that preschool children are quite conscious, and they can be explained that their mother will leave for a moment. Again, I do not hold this point of view. In addition, I have some fear of a closed space.
Yes, you can take your daughter for 15-20 minutes with games on your phone, but she can do the same thing, being with me, rather than sitting alone in a car. Why are there children, I would not even leave the animals alone in the car.
It seems to me that the reason why children are left alone in the car lies in a banal laziness. Too lazy to wake, shoe, get a child out of the car seat. Especially if it’s for a couple of minutes. Several times and I had such situations, but always, I repeat once again, the car was in my field of vision.
But another friend of mine can leave in the car not only the daughter, but also the keys so that she can get out of the car if necessary (6-year-old girl). It seems to me that this option is dangerous because a child may suffer because of someone’s desire to take over someone else’s motor transport!
In general, my conclusion is unequivocal: it is impossible to leave a child in a car, provided that the car is out of the sight of the parents. What do you think?
