Obviously, my dd doesn't want to, and I don't feel she needs to since when she sits on the seat, her feet rest flat on the floor. HOWEVER, my mother makes her still sit in the booster even though I have told her not to. She says: "Her car, her rules". Well, I am about to say "my child, my rules, she doesn't go with you if you don't follow them".
My concern also is: Is it even safe for my dd to be in the booster, since she is clearly not needing one?

My son just turned 9 and is about 54" and 70lbs and still rides in a booster if it's available. The experts suggest kids be at least 4'9" (57") to safely use a seatbelt. I know in our truck our son doesn't fit right without the booster. In my dad's car he had to ride in the passenger seat (only available seat) and he fit just fine there (belt fit right, feet on the floor, knees bent at the edge of the seat, etc). My 10yo also rides in a booster but she's only like 49" and 47lbs (the size of the average 7yo).
