Woman Called the Cops When Mom Left Her Sleeping Kid in the Car for 5 Minutes

By

Are we at the point where parents should never leave their kids in the car for any amount of time, even when the weather is mild and they're just running into the store for a minute? That's the question at the center of this viral post from Reddit's "Am I the A-hole?"

"I was at the grocery store this evening and as I was getting out of my car, I saw a woman leaving her car and going into the store with a young toddler (one or two) still in the back seat," the poster writes. Remembering those news stories of parents accidentally leaving their children in the backs of hot cars, she stepped up to the woman and said, "Oh hey, ma'am, your kid is still in there."
