I wouldn't feel comfortable leaving my kids in the car when I went to the shops. Leaving the in the car at the petrol station is entirely different because I believe it is risky walking around all those cars with young kids.

So the police are confident they will find an Aboriginal or Torres Straight Island man in his 20s.....yeah....sounds to me like this is one they wont solve unless there is footage. Obviously a 6yr old and 2yr old cant give much of a description, but how can police be confident of catching him if thats all they have to go on?

Yes, things happen, but not often enough for me to take ridiculous steps to ensure nothing ever happens to my kids (referring to FL's good example of co-sleeping forever!)
For example, the woman who posted in another thread about not leaving her sleeping baby in the car, well, if she'd woken the bub up and taken her with her for a 30 second walk to the PO, let me see:
She could have
*accidentally bumped the baby's head as she was taking bub out of the car
*she could have tripped up and dropped bub while walking to the PO
*she could have been hit by a car with bub in her arms, if crossing the road to take bub to PO
*she could have been assaulted by a robber at the PO
The chances of any of those happening are about as likely as your car being stolen in the 30 seconds it took to go the PO yourself...
You know it just goes on and on.
There is risk in EVERY thing we do in life, leaving your kids securely in the car while you dash somewhere rates really low on my risk radar, I can think of a million more risky things I definitely would not do where kids are concerned!!
