    There have been a couple of discussion threads in the last few weeks in this community about leaving children unattended in cars. I thought I would share this link with you all. Among other things, it summarizes the law state by state, when it comes to this topic.

    Wow!!!

    I had NO idea of this site nor the different state laws!! This will definitely be something that will be shared with my friends and family.

    Thanks so much for looking out for the community and the little ones, Dr. DuMond. We greatly appreciate all that you do!
