"Use these tips to remind myself there is a child in the vehicle:
• Write myself a note and place it where I'll see it when I leave the vehicle.
• Place my purse, briefcase, or something else I'm sure to need in the back seat so I'll see the child in the vehicle.
• Keep an object in the car seat, such as a stuffed toy. Once the child is buckled in, I will place the object where I'll see it before leaving the vehicle.
• Notify the authorities immediately if I see a child left unattended in a vehicle." Administration for Children and Families.
