Former RJ instigator
We were working on her to do that way before the cops/firemen ever got there, she'd just smile at us, it was very frustrating.Isn't that where it should have started ?
My mother locked my 2 year old in her car ( Chrysler Town and Country mini-van) with built in car seats. ( This was 21 years ago) She calls me to see if I can get to the store. I show up and the security people are trying to "slim-Jim" the van door open.
When my mom put my daughter in the seat she had handed her her "sippy cup". They have a hard, almost nipple like tip on the top.
I just walked up and looked at her thru the window and said " How are you doing? Hey baby, do me a favor, turn your cup upside down and push on that red button as hard as you can with it" 5 seconds later she was out of her car seat and unlocked the door. She was very proud of herself.
My mother and the store security people were looking at each other like "What the hell just happened? "
