Q: WHAT KIND OF PARENT WOULD NEED THIS???
A: A Proactive Parent!
Q: WHY WOULD ANY PARENT NEED THIS???
A: BECAUSE THIS CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE!!!
Have you ever started driving down the road and you became lost in thought, were fatigued or overwhelmed by the tasks ahead or just simply distracted, that you actually forgot where you were going? Now imagine that happens and there is a quiet sleeping child in the car. No one is perfect and we all have those moments. We do all that we can to care for our children as best can. Unfortunately, we cannot control everything.
That does NOT make you a bad parent, or a bad grandparent or a bad care giver. But it does make you human. And sometimes, life just gets hectic, we get fatigued, overwhelmed or distracted, and we can forget even the most precious things in our lives.
Parents work hard at everything. And every day, we do the very best that we can to be the best version of ourselves that we can be in that day. But let's be honest, some days are better than others and bad things can and do happen, to anyone, even by accident.
This tool is all about PROACTIVE PARENTING. Ownership of this tool states that you are a parent that admits that you are human and that we all could use a little help sometimes. You are also INVITING other people to take action should you need their help. Using this tag is no different than taking an infant CPR class or baby proofing your home.
Yes, there are cases out there of clear child neglect pertaining to these types of circumstances. But those parents would never use the "DON'T FORGET BABY!!!™" Car Mirror Tag.
But for every incident of child neglect, there are as many incidents where the parent/care giver was loving, giving and attentive. The child simply fell asleep, the parent became tired or sidetracked, and sadly tragedy struck. THIS CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE.
So please, if you see someone with the "DON'T FORGET BABY!!!™" Car Mirror Tag, congratulate them for their courage and for their efforts towards proactive parenting and child safety. And remember that here at "DON'T FORGET BABY!!!™" Car Mirror Tag 10% of all of our profits are donated to cord blood and cord tissue research. Saving lives two fold.
