Trouble is, it's usually the parents backing out in the morning, etc, which causes the problem. The local papers and TV news report this happening every once in a while.
I don't doubt your own professional skill. The real life home situations are a little different, and side mirrors don't work well for seeing the back side of an SUV where a child might be playing. Ordinary consumer SUVs don't come with those rear mounted angled mirrors seen on delivery vans, thus the back up cameras.
My younger bro had one of the plastic Fresnel lenses stuck on the back window of his VW van so that he could see whether or not his two kids were playing/hiding behind the van. It worked to some degree. Finally bought an aftermarket rear camera.
