Minutes feel like a lifetime when you can't find your child
A survey by Irish company Koolio has found that one in three Irish parents has become accidentally separated from their child or children under the age of 10.
Apparently, we lose them most in large supermarkets and shopping centres. I've certainly spent time desperately sprinting up and down the aisles of supermarkets trying to find my kids as the panic began to rise.
Even three minutes can seem like a lifetime under those circumstances.
