Maybe you’ve done it or maybe you would turn someone in for doing it but it just recently happened again, a parent leaving their child in the car. This time the baby was an infant sitting in the seat of a car with a pink princess blanket wrapped around the bottom of the baby with a warm hat on. Laying on top of the baby and the blanket was a note that the mom left for anyone concerned to read.
DJ Polly Gillespie quoted on Facebook that the note said, “If anything goes wrong while I’m shopping, please call this number.” The Daily Mail quoted the note as saying, “My mum’s in doing the shopping, call her if I need anything.” Obviously there is some discrepancy about what the letter actually reads and it’s blurry enough that you can’t make out the words on the note.
If you’re wondering who the note was discovered by, it was a couple that was getting ready to shop themselves in the Pak’nSave in Porirua parking lot. The PAK’nSAVE is a popular grocery outlet in New Zealand where the mother, the baby and the upset couple found the baby. A man and his wife uploaded the picture to Facebook and it took off as people reshared and it shared comments about how wrong the situation was and how angry they were.
As of 7:00pm on March 26th, 2013 DJ Polly’s Facebook post about the Baby Left With A Note has garnered 460 likes, 185 shares and 1,539 comments. Here are some of the things people are saying about the situation, do you agree?
“This was a mum who didn’t want to disturb her baby … Who may have had a terrible sleepless night being tired the next day …. She did her best … This baby has a loving mother ….”
“When I worked in retail out west I always say babies left in cars while the mum shopped, I think its really common and some people don’t think its a big deal, these people that do this just have NO COMMON SENSE!!”
“I feel extremely sorry for this poor woman everyone is jumping to the conclusion that she is a bad mum or has mental health issues or isn’t sure how to parent don’t judge what u don’t no keep your opinions to yourself i doubt any of u that have criticized this woman even no her and if u claim to b a perfect parent then I’m sorry no parent is perfect.”
“Some people have no business having children if that’s the way they’re going to treat them! How can anyone with 2 brain cells bumping together possibly think that leaving a child of any age in a locked car in a parking lot is safe while they go into a store of any sort?? What has caused people to forgo common sense these days? Personally I think she should be arrested for endangering the welfare of a child! Having said that, what makes you think by posting this that you won’t get a negative reaction from people who actually have a reasonable amount of common sense and know better than to do such a knowingly irresponsible thing? Coming from a parent who has personally lost a child due to the neglect of the other parent, while he was in her care, you bet your ass you’re going to get a harsh response! Most all people should be fired up and pissed about such blatant disregard and neglect towards a child! People are entirely too passive when it comes to the erroneous care that other parents seem to permit with their children and then purposely including the public with a note?!?! Are you out of your mind?”
It seems the comments just keep going and it’s interesting to see there are two completely different sides. Surprisingly there are a lot of people in support of the mother and feel sorry for her. There have been claims that the police should get involved, however, at this time the police say they can do nothing. The law in New Zealand states that any parent or guardian that leaves a child under the age of 14 years old could be fined up to NZ$2,000. Stuff in New Zealand states that police have admitted no one has lodged a complaint against the woman leaving her baby alone in the car. Senior Sergeant Justin Rakena from Porirua Police Department said, “We weren’t called, and we’ve had no complaints, if they do call us, we’ll be acting on it.”

Baby Left in Car – Social Experiment
Online games affect child’s psychological growth and behavior
People can connect to people from other parts of the world in so many ways both paid or not. We can get connected through favorite social media apps, dating sites, and for the younger ones they compare themselves with others through online gaming.
The advancement of technology has evolved from simple forms to very impressive ones that have taken these sites including video games to a higher level. With today’s innovative technology, these games already come in features you never know that existed.
Meanwhile, online gaming has been one of the most popular on children and even young adults as their past-time activity while others play for a living.
Although, the problem on these online platforms is that at times it can be addictive for others and could cause violence in the long run—there are risks when these sites are used in the wrong way. Most of those who are affected by these issues are our children, and the numbers of these cases have gone out of hand around the world.
Studies show that when children are exposed to too much screen time or play time online causes harm to their behavior, and their psychological and physical growth.
It affects the way they speak, interacts, and respond to people and things around them. They tend to live their ‘real life’ as if it is one of their games.
Sadly, most reports are connected with violence and misbehavior in their homes and schools. It will only be a matter of time when children forget that they need to communicate with real people and the real world.
Accordingly, this happens to a lot of children from around the world, and the solution to this unruly behavior is only one thing—that is ending their addiction to online games. But how can we benefit the advantages of new technology and not its wrong sides?
As parents and educators, we should be the first ones to set the limit for our children by letting them see that there is more to life than their lives in online games. We play a vital role in their behavior and how they use the internet; while it is true that not everything we see on the internet is terrible, but what we do not understand is what causes the wrong turns.
We can reduce the risks of children getting addicted to games by understanding that social media and online games are not solely the root of it all, but when our lifestyle gets disrupted by it, it will be safe to conclude that it might be the cause of changed behavior.
Michelle Obama Shares About Her Miscarriage In Her Book “Becoming”
Michelle Obama spoke about her miscarriage 20 years ago. She told Good Morning America that she had been feeling lonely and lost since her miscarriage happened. This is something she hid for so long. But now Mrs. Obama has spoken about it boldly in her memoir “Becoming” which is set to be released on Tuesday. In her book, she talks about her life, family, marriage, and politics. This one of the most awaited books in political history as it ranks as the best-seller on Amazon.
On her miscarriage, she mentioned how it had crippled her to open up about it since she felt like couples do not usually discuss it. She said that she suffered the feeling of being a failure and acknowledge that feeling of brokenness due to this event in her life and marriage.
The pain a mother feels for her lost child can never equal to any pain an ordinary person would feel. It is the death of a supposed ‘bundle of joy’— the death of what could have been happiness. Millions of women around the world could tell how it pains them to lose a child and she is one of them. As she writes boldly about her unwanted phase in life, she wishes to reach women of the same circumstances. Mrs. Obama also revealed that they had their 2 children, Sasha and Malia, through in-vitro fertilization.
In her book, she not only shared about her sadness and grief about her miscarriage but she also shared about her falling in love, their first kiss, and how it all started. How she met her husband and how she coped up being one of America’s first lady for years – something that is now written in books for a lifetime.
Mrs. Obama also opened up about her thoughts on racism which she experienced first-hand from people around the globe. Being America’s first black first lady did not come that easy on her. She and her family had to deal with years of agony, but now with all pride and confidence, she has found her peace knowing that they have made a significant impact on the nations. Brave enough to face fears and the norm.
Research Shows Infants Still Sleeping with Bedding, Despite SIDS Risk
More than half of American parents continue to use soft bedding for their sleeping babies, according to a new study.
Researchers analyzed the results of the National Infant Sleep Position survey and found nearly 19,000 parents of children younger than 8 months who were contacted by phone and answered questions about their baby’s sleep environment. Most were white mothers, nearly half with a college education, and about half had a previous child, according to the study.
The most common use of bedding occurred among teen mothers, more than 80 percent used bedding. Not having a college education and younger mothers in general were also linked to more frequent use of bedding. Minority mothers were more likely than white mothers to use soft bedding, the study reported.
The study found about 70 percent of the infants sleeping with soft bedding were on adult beds and/or sharing a sleeping surface with someone else.
Researchers found that the use of bedding for infants declined from an average of 86 percent between 1993 and 1995 to an average of 55 percent between 2008 and 2010. Most of that decline, however, occurred before 2000.
In 1996, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) updated a recommendation on sleeping positions for babies, advising that they sleep on their back on firm surfaces without any soft bedding like blankets or quilts, which may pose a suffocation risk.
The findings were reported online Dec. 1 in Pediatrics.
Infants should be placed to sleep alone, on their backs, on a firm sleep surface, such as in a mattress in a safety-approved crib External Web Site Policy, covered by a fitted sheet. Soft objects, toys, crib bumpers, quilts, comforters and loose bedding should be kept out of the baby’s sleep area.
“Soft bedding has been shown to increase the risk of SIDS. Soft objects and loose bedding — such as thick blankets, quilts and pillows — can obstruct an infant’s airway and impose suffocation risk,” said lead author Carrie Shapiro-Mendoza, a senior scientist in the Maternal and Infant Health Branch of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “Parents have good intentions but may not understand that blankets, quilts and pillows increase a baby’s risk of SIDS and accidental suffocation.”
SIDS, the third leading cause of death for infants in the U.S., is defined by the CDC as “the sudden death of an infant less than 1 year of age that cannot be explained after a thorough investigation is conducted, including a complete autopsy, examination of the death scene, and a review of the clinical history.”
“The safest place for a baby to sleep is on his back, in a crib or bassinet in the parent’s or caregiver’s room,” Shapiro-Mendoza said.
