My youngest turns 8 Friday, and according to state law he'll be able to graduate to using just a seat belt. California has been airing commercials fairly heavily saying this. If I remember right, old law was 8 or 80 lbs. My DS is around 55 lbs, and I'll be keeping him in a seat for the time being until he's grown a bit more. I've always been very cautious with carseats/booster seats. I know many others are not, if the drop off/pick up line at the elementary school is any indication.
Do you feel safety always trumps possible embarrassment? Is there an age where you would go by that more than size? I'm not sure when I'll allow him to ditch the booster, but I know I don't want a 12 year old still restrained by one.
How do you feel about parents who think if a child is embarrassed, law or no law, they can ditch the seat even if they're far below the minimum height/weight requirement?
