I leave my kids in the car briefly to pay for petrol, watching the car all the time. I May think twice after reading this though!!!
Do you leave your kids in the car to pop into the dairy etc...
I usually try to get petrol when I don't have kids in the car, after I've dropped everyone at school and preschool for instance. But when they are with me I generally leave them in the car when I go to pay. They are 10, 7 and 4 now, and I'd always lock the car but I've done this since they were tiny.
It's a worry tho, and certainly not the first time it's happened here. I wonder if the guy is still speaking to his mate? Think twice about who you leave your kids with!
I would never leave the kids alone in the car if I couldn't see them still! Now days I usually have teens in the car too, so it's all good.
It has just been hard when you have got a baby and toddler and all you want to do is pay for petrol. In my case at times it would of been more dangerous to take my baby in while trying to control my toddler and pay for gas, than to quickly pop in (with keys in hand) and pay.
I always take the keys with me too!
