WWYD? Child Left in Car

Parent A: Drops older child off at preschool and picks up daily. Leaves infant in car. Car is running. Doors are locked. School is located inside a church in a rural area.

Parent B: Notices infant in car and videotapes infant as well as the car's tag number. Reports to the preschool director and threatens to call police if Parent A continues to leave child in car. He/She brings his or her younger child in every pickup/drop-off.

State Law: A child may be left unattended in a car, running or not, for up to 10 minutes.

Maybe my cars are old and cheap, but how do you lock your car and keep it running at the same time?

Extra key? Keyless entry?

OP, I don't know how safe it is for "A" to leave the kid in the car, but "B" is totally out of bounds in videotaping. Really, who does that?

1. Two sets of keys.

2. Take the door locker gadget and leave the ignition key in the ignition.

3. Keyless entry

If it isn't against the law the person should mine there own business.

I coudn't imagine video taping someone's car for that. Why not just approach the person and state your mind.

I'm guessing you're Parent A. State law or not, the preschool may have their own policy, for liability sake. I'd chat with them to find out and follow whatever it is. If it mirrors the state law, ask the preschool to tell Parent B to MYOB. I would not confront the other party.

Got it. My car doesn't have keyless,so I won't be able to do it.

I agree videotaping is very inappropriate.

Agree with this.

Parent A should bring infant in during drop off and pick up. Even if the law is 10 minutes, sometimes parents get waylaid and the child may be left alone longer than intended.

We have a remote start. Our doors MUST be locked in order for the remote start to work!

Parent B did the right thing IMO. There is no time EVER that I would have left my son inside a car, locked or not, by himself. Just because the school is located inside a church in a rural area does not make it any safer. I would have done the same thing.

If my car is running, the doors wont lock even if your inside or outside. My car is brand new too, 2012. I dunno how she managed to lock it with the car running. Anyway, I think video taping was out of line.

I dont agree with leaving a child alone inside a running car, but if state law says 10 min or under is acceptable, then thats fine.

But I think the parent should have minded their own business thou.

You can't lock your doors when you're in the car with it running?
