In the news two children have died from being trapped in a hot car recently. That makes 15 children this year. Most cases are by accident but as parents this is something to think about during the hot summer months ahead. Our cars act as ovens and can heat up 20 degrees in 10 minutes. That might not sound like a lot but in Texas or many states it can be deadly. Cars can reach 110 degrees when the outside temperatures are only in the 60's! That is hot! Most of the children left in cars die of heat stroke and this isn't what any parent wants. So how can you prevent this from happening? A few inventions and tricks below can help you remember your child.
