I do! My 10 and 12 year old boys are always buckled up properly, and my 5 year old little girl is always in her booster seat. Just read this story about a SUV that was hit by another car, and it rolled over. There were 6 children, 2 pregnant women and a man inside and none of them were wearing their seatbelts. 2 of the children and one of the women was ejected from the vehicle. They were airlifted to the hospital. The others who managed to remain in the vehicle were all treated for minor injuries. Police say if they had all been wearing a seatbelt they probably would all have walked away from it. I know the accident was not their fault and like most people, they probably thought it couldn't happen to them but you can't control what other people do on the road. This other driver is suspected of being high while driving. Buckle your kids, please.

No I personally don't buckle them... but they know that I won't move the car until they've buckled themselves in. I don't think I need to do it since they are all 7 yrs old and older. I worked in the ER of a Children's Hospital so I saw first hand what happens when kids don't buckle. It's not pretty.
