  • I know the woman and her child. I know her circumstances. Shes not that great of a mom and this just bothers me. I fear for her child!

  • well, you didn't say that originally. you just said if we saw. now we know her too? that changes the cards. if i knew her, i would give her a quick rundown of carseat safety laws and hope she takes the advice. beyond that though its none of my business.

  • How is child endangerment and breaking the law involving a child not our business?



    I would call the police and make sure I knew her plate numbers when I did call.

  • Can she afford one? If not, why not go get her one? She probably knows the laws and doesn't care. In that case, saying something to her will not do a bit of good.

  • oh yeah my friend did that.. but she was my really close friend and i sat down with her and i said.. i love you and dont take this the wrong way but i know you are a better mom and person then that ( even tho she wasnt just trying to make her feel good about herself maybe give her some confidence) and i said put that baby in a car seat cause, you could never live with yourself if anything happen..
