I'm giving away a
Driver's Little Helper
Who is more likely to leave a child behind in a car?
Just about anyone can.
According to the Dept. of Meteorology and Climate Science, between 1998 and 2014 of the 636 infants and children who died, 34% were forgotten by fathers, 29% by mothers, 10% by both parents, 4% by Grandmothers and 5% by female and male caregivers. Pulitzer Prize winner Gene Weingarten of the Washington Post wrote a compelling article on this topic, Fatal Distractions, and he reports “The wealthy do, it turns out. And the poor, and the middle class. Parents of all ages and ethnicities do it. Mothers are just as likely to do it as fathers. It happens to the chronically absent-minded and to the fanatically organized, to the college-educated and to the marginally literate. In the last 10 years, it has happened to a dentist. A postal clerk. A social worker. A police officer. An accountant. A soldier. A paralegal. An electrician. A Protestant clergyman. A rabbinical student. A nurse. A construction worker. An assistant principal. It happened to a mental health counselor, a college professor and a pizza chef. It happened to a pediatrician. It happened to a rocket scientist.”
A real solution is a car seat monitor that prevents accidents from happening. One that works with any car seat and is affordable. Bob Steffen is the developer of Driver’s Little Helper and father of three from St. Louis, MO. When Bob’s son wiggled out of his car seat as a toddler, Bob recognized the dangers. He worked with a Ford engineer to perfect the design. And after eight years of design and development, Bob got his first patent. He found a manufacturer and went to market. And today there is a smartphone-enabled car seat alert system called Driver’s Little Helper, available to parents who cares enough about safety and preventing accidents from happening.
Just recently Driver’s Little Helper was awarded the Mom’s Choice Award, honoring excellence in family-friendly media, products and service. “This is a proactive monitor,” says Steffen. “It’s not like a smoke detector. We don’t wait for the fire. We let you know beforehand that something could go wrong, so you have time to adjust and keep your kids safe.”
Driver’s Little Helper is the only product on the market that monitors three important events: it alerts parents and caregivers if the temperature inside the car is too hot or cold, when a child leaves the car seat, and if a child is left behind in the seat after the vehicle has stopped moving.
The bundle, which includes the sensor pad, a battery pack, app information and an instructional booklet, retails for $79.99 and is available today at DriversLittleHelper.com, Amazon.com and Sears.com.
