Six-year olds & booster seats..... What do you do?

Jump to last reply

My granddaughter is six years old, weigh 53 lbs., and I insist that she sit in a booster seat in the back seat, per all the recommendations. I know about statistics, what you SHOULD do, and why. Problem: her Mom allows her to sit in a regular seat-belt in the back, and of course, she wants to do it with me. Years ago, my son stretched out in the backseat, with pillow and blanket, no seat-belt............ That's what *everybody* did.

Just wondering, when you're traveling today with young kids, how lax are you about these things on, say, an all-day drive? Do you ever give into the begging, and *let them loose* to lie down in the back-seat, or do you stick strictly to what you know you should do? And on most school buses, am I right in thinking there are no seat-belts?
