Have any of you looked at the current car seat recommendations?
I know that this information is over a year old but not having a kid puts you out of the loop with these things. I just read this
and could not believe my eyes. They recommend that a child is in a booster seat up to 12 years old... Children are 12 when they first start 8th grade! I'd imagine that the recommendations for infants are just as ridiculous but I am not positive. Although these are recommendations, things like this do become laws. In my town, any bike riders 17 and under are required to wear helmets. They actually write $50 tickets for those that break the law. How many years will it be before helmets are required to be worn while driving a car? Is it our right to decide how much we are willing to inconvenience ourselves in order to increase our odds of not dying or is the government in the right here since they have our best interests at hand?
