I can't say we should reserve judgement. The article makes it pretty clear the mother left the child to go into the terminal, plus mentions it's (apparently) not the first time.
Either way though I hope there are no lasting effects for the poor child.

I read the article above and it discusses that point Kimberleygal1....that in the mind of the parent, the action (dropping off at day care) has been completed, they don't revisit it again during the day because they think they have done it. I don't replay in my mind the morning drop off once I am at work, I check my phone periodically during the day for messages or phone calls, but aside from that, I assume I did the drop off. IYKWIM?
World of difference between actually forgetting your child and deliberately leaving them in a car, with the windows up, so you can do an errand. The second really is unforgivable, the first an awful awful tragedy.

There needs to be CO2 detectors in cars, so an automated system of cooling/hydration can be activated, or an alarm or something for older cars. And it should be compulsory.
Tragic accident or not, it must be punishable because there's no way of knowing it was truly an accident. There really isn't.

Let's see what you think is acceptable when you've got more than one kid. I've got 3, none are at school yet, they're much safer in my car at a petrol station.
