  • My 2 year old brother died in the car because he was forgotten. My mom was pregnant with me. I actually have a pretty neglectful and dysfunctional family but I always wonder what my life would’ve been like all these years if he were still around. I’m 16 now…

  • Babies locked in hot cars is all attributable to the feminism movement in general. Single mothers who cannot afford a nanny or daycare/assistant. Women in the workplace who pawn off motherly duties to a father whos likely to make mistakes do to complacency and deviating of routines.

  • WHO NEEDS A BABY REMINDER. HOW DO YOU FORGET YOUR KIDS IN A CAR? IDC HOW BUSY LIFE IS MY KIDS ARE ALWAYS ON MY MIND!!!!!!!!!! PARENTS DON’T FORGET THEY DO IT AND SAY THEY FORGOT!!!!! THEY KNOW DAMN WELL THEY ARE LEAVING THEIR KIDS IN THE CAR. IT MAKES ME FURIOUS!!!!!

  • I didnt need ACT to remember. I knew my child was in his car seat no matter if I or his dad put him in it; he was the first of anything I got out of the car.

  • So people need an acronym and app to remember their kids in the car. We need a license for everything else but having children. The lady said to put something valuable in the back seat. So should we put another child or would they then just forget them both?

  • 0:50 put something valuable in the backseat?! Oh come on! Isn’t a child something valuable? If people are so stupid, they shouldn’t have children!!!

  • 2 me there is no such thing as it happens to anybody leaving babies in a hot car bullshit it happens because parents don’t give a flying f# #k. They should be jailed for neglect & abandonment. Seriously stop making excuses for parents leaving their babies in a hot car @ anytime.������

  • Y’all are highly judgemental.of course I always think I would never ever leave my kid in a car. You don’t always know why but there are scientifically proven short term memory loses in which the parent believes wholeheartedly that they have already dropped their child off at daycare. Are some of t he cases suspicious? Yes they are. But not all. Remember that before you call all of these parents monsters

  • This is appalling. If you need a reminder for your children wtf else are these people forgetting? There must be millions of people out there dying of starvation because they keep forgetting to eat. Do they also forget to dress themselves and show up naked to work? Do they forget which side of the road to drive on? I might accidentally forget not to rob an armored truck. It’s such an easy mistake to make right?

  • this is crazy if you have to put your phone in the back seat to remember that your child/children are in the car you shouldn’t be a parrent

  • Did ABC news really just say you should put your briefcase or purse in the backseat so you don’t forget it because you’re going to look for it the f*** why are you not already looking for your children No ABC No

  • Anyone stupid enough to leave a baby in a hot car will have their window busted if I spot them. I’m more than willing to damage your car to save a life

  • If you forget you have a baby, then why do you live? Baby is much bigger than phone and how can you forget you ever got pregnant and got into labor? Unbelievable!

  • why should you need an app to remind you that your kid is in the car? the child should be the most important thing to the parent. this shit actually upsets me.
