Any fuel leak is dangerous and requires immediate attention, gas fumes drift and can be ignited many feet away, so don't take a chance with yours or your child well being, quit driving the car until you can get ti fixed, if necessary, rent a car while your is in the shop, some shops have rentals that are at a reduced rate if they are working on your car, check it out, it would be a lot safer for both of you.
