Do you in the back seat with your child??

  • No normally. On the way to the ER or sometimes on a long car trip I will.

  • The only time I've ever done that was when we were bringing a baby home from the hospital.

  • No, I don't see a need for it, it would just create a bad habit.

  • Nope. The back seat of our car is too small for most adults. Besides, it's hard to have a conversation with anyone if they're in the back seat and NOT one of my kids.

  • Me or DH sat in the back with our kids 3 times total. They are 6 and 4. Each ride home from the hospital I sat with them in the back and once when my daughter needed stitches, DH rode with her in the back to keep pressure on her cut.

    I have a friend, her kids are almost 5 and 2.5 and she rides in the back with them ALL OF THE TIME. I find it so incredibly strange.
