I always leave in in R and put the parking brake on. That way the habit is there so you don't drain your battery by leaving it other gears when you take a break from driving your car.

I always use the parking brake with cars in gear for all manual transmissions. Like described above, it could pop out of gear, your kid hits the shifter crawling around, etc. and the bad boy starts rolling away.
