Do you always but your child in a car seat?

Be honest now. I have seen people everyday who drive by with at least one little head boucing around in the backseat freely.

  • Always! I would feel like the worst person in the world if something happened to my kids because I didnt take that extra minute to just put them in their car seats

  • LOL my 4year old can buckle himself but i'll be honest, when we are out garage saling in the neighborhood garage sales and there's one house after another, he doesnt always put on his seatbelt for that couple second drive.

  • I do. There is no way I'd ever leave the driveway with them not in the car seats safely bucked in. I cannot stand to see people with what looks like 3 year olds in the front or even back seat just bouncing around. Or holding an infant in their arms while they sit in the passenger seat going down the road.
