"What kind of person forgets a baby? The wealthy do, it turns out. And the poor, and the middle class. Parents of all ages and ethnicities do it. Mothers are just as likely to do it as fathers. It happens to the chronically absent-minded and to the fanatically organized, to the college-educated and to the marginally literate."
The Washington Post won a Pulitzer Prize in 2010 for its coverage of the story "Fatal Distraction" which looked at the families who struggled after accidentally forgetting a child in the car. The powerful article is a reminder to parents to take proactive steps to prevent this from happening in your life.
