It happens, on average, once every nine days in the United States, and it is devastating: a child dies of heatstroke after being left in a parked vehicle. Although there have been cases in which parents are charged with purposely abandoning their kid in the backseat on a hot summer day, most of the time it's well-meaning, loving caregivers who make this honest mistake — and that's why statistics of all the children who have died in hot cars shows that precautions against this are so important. As much as some parents believe that they'd never, ever forget about their tiny passengers, that's actually a dangerous mindset that only increases the likelihood of this continuing to happen.  Learn ways to manage the chaos of one of these calls and how to treat heatstroke and even prevent this from happening in the first place.
