Can’t figure out if you’re a good parent or not? Look at this sign and if it was helpful, then you’re doing it wrong.

OMG! People actually have to be told to remove children from cars!! We’re a nation of idiots!
I just noticed one of these in our local Wal Mart and nearly started swearing. You see, I had inadvertently left my 3 year old in my van by himself…
This sign is really the height of idiocy. If you’re the kind of parent who leaves their kids in the car while you shop, you’re not gonna walk by that sign and suddenly realize you should’ve had them with you…
Babies have died because someone forgot they were in the back seat in hot weather. Happened near Des Moines. Her name was Claire.
The saddest aspect of this is that they are putting these signs everywhere.
If you need this sign, then you’re too stupid to drive.

The Last Universalist
The mere fact that someone felt this sign is necessary, is terrifying.
Saw that sign,went back to the car,got the kid.Put him in the cart,went shopping.Left but no sign on the way out,got home,had to go back to get kid out of the cart.
It might not actually help. But if you have had to read about a dead baby, and parents helpless with grief and guilt, you would understand it does happen. To good, educated, wonderful people. The mother usually did not take the baby to the sitter, and on a morning she was supposed to, she forgot the baby in the back and went to work. You like to think it could never happen to you, and you would never forget where your child was. I hope it never happens to any of you.
Hahahaha!! We have one of those signs at our SuperCenter, too. Must be a national…trend?? Phenomenom??? What’s going on, people??
Really are you that out of it that youve forgotten that you actually BUCKLED YOUR OWN PRECIOUS CHILD?? IM SURE THE CHILD WAS PRETTY VERBAL ABOUT IT AND THE RIDE TO THERE THE WHOLE TIME. …& YET YOU FORGOT THE CHILD WAS THERE??
HOW DOES THAT EVEN HAPPEN …?? WHAT ALTERED STATE OFCONSIOUSNESS ARE YOU IN THAT YOU CAN BLOCK THE PRESENCE OF A CHILD OUT OF YOUR MIND ????????
I Knew I forgot something
Darren I’m talking about an infant, probably asleep, not a toddler.
Parents who need this sign should be sterilized immediately.
When the “Baby on Board” signs aren’t enough of a reminder.
A lot of children will promptly go to sleep when riding in a car. Both of mine would do that up until they were about three years old. If the child is asleep and the parent, for whatever reason, gets distracted, I can see them forgetting the child. I will also admit that there are some folks in this world who should never have been allowed to have children in the first place.
As ridiculous as this sign may be, if it helps to save even one child…..they are worth it. In recent years there has been an increase of young children dying in cars. Idiotic people who think the child will be fine for a while, and do not consider how cars can become ovens in a short period of time. Unfortunately, about ten years ago I knew someone who lost their baby this way. The 6 mth old was asleep in the car, so they went in to a house to visit with a friend not wanting to wake the baby….and was looking out now and then to see if it was awake. It over-heated while sleeping, and died. In a very short time. People just really do not understand the dangers, and how fast it can turn tragic.
They should include dogs on this sign as well. They often get left for long periods in the ovens on wheels too.

gene-pool thinning isnt so bad. i’d rather it was a reminder not to leave pets in car
I do not understand how any parent under any circumstance could forget their child, or leave their child in a car. No matter how quiet your car is, or how hectic your day is, or what you’ve got on your mind – or those factors all together, how do you forget your child???
I WAS REJECTED BY LYNN S OF STATEN ISLAND
Make sure Lynn S mangy mutt isn’t left unattended in Lynn S crappy vehicle because the poor unwashed dog may run out and shit all over Walmart in NJ.
Anything that will raise the level of consciousness for the safety of children can only be a good thing… thank you very much!
No jenzilynn, the saddest part is that these signs are necessary. Common sense is not so common anymore.
The county medical examiner has ruled the death accidental, but prosecutors have yet to decide whether to charge Kari Engholm over the death of her daughter Clare.
Engholm left Clare in a minivan last month on a day when outside temperatures approached 90 degrees. Engholm was rushing to attend a series of meetings at Dallas County Hospital in Perry, Iowa.
IF YOU CANNOT REMEMBER WHETHER YOU BROUGHT YOUR BABY IN THE CAR WITH YOU, WHERE THE HECK IS YOUR MIND ..POSSIBLY UP THE THICKEST PART OF YOUR A$$ !
“Can a woman forget her nursing child, that she should have no compassion on the son of her womb? Even these may forget, yet I will not forget you. Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of My hands…” [Isaiah 49:15,16]

it’s cya for the business. if you cater to the segment of society that
tends to do this type of thing, sooner or later your gonna get named in a wrongfull death suit. “we tried… we put up a sign…”
These signs are necessary, because cousins are still allowed to marry and produce offspring. Sad

They need a sign saying “Please make sure your child is with you at all times; before leaving the store.”. Less of paging missing: Mom, Dad, and grand parents

VERBATIM: Yes, that can happen when a parent goes to work truly thinking they’ve dropped their baby off at daycare. It does NOT happen when a parent makes a run to Walmart, unless it’s intentional because the parent is a lazy scumbag.
verbatim “if you have had to read about a dead baby, and parents helpless with grief and guilt, you would understand it does happen. To good, educated, wonderful people. The mother usually did not take the baby to the sitter, and on a morning she was supposed to, she forgot the baby in the back and went to work.

The person who benefits from the sign should leave their kid(s) in the car because their genetics need to be removed from the gene pool. Stupidity is a disease that can be passed down generations.

these aren’t actually intended for the parents who forget or are just plain lazy these are for other customers to be reminded to keep a look out for kids left in vehicles. And yes it is very sad that its even necessary to ask ppl to do the job of a parent who isn’t responsible enough to be one

You know I have forgotten a lot of things in my car purse, can of soda, cigarettes…..MY KID NOT! How does one forget they put their child in the car has always been my question?!?

Here, just north of Philly, a few years back a daycare owner did a neighbor a favor and drove the neighbor child to her daycare.
It wasn’t until late afternoon that she remembered she had given the child a ride and ran out to her vehicle. She was hours too late.
HOW can you put your child in the car and FORGET their with you? I will never understand this. Maybe for a brief moment as you start to walk awake but then it should hit you like a TON of bricks that your baby/child is in the car. (My opinion) people that do this don’t deserve to have the gift of a child. Children don’t ask to be brought into this world so do them a favor and take care of them.
Sad part about this is that most people, if did leave there kids in the car, would not go back to get there kids because they just walked the whole way to the store.
although it was NOT IN A WAL MART PARKING LOT, just last weekend two moronic parents in EL CAJON,CA left their 4 month old baby in the car overnight. the infant was discovered at 1:30 pm the following day, by children who were playing in the apartment complex parking lot. SADLY, despite all efforts to save him, the infant died.
With some people you really have to spell it out,and even then you have to pray they can read.
