My 9 1/2 yo ds is still in a booster

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
What is the longest you have had ( or heard of) a child in a booster?


My son turns 10 in 4 months and I dont feel he is ready to be out of a booster.

I think we switched when they were past 9, but not much past.     (4th grade)

I am so glad that there are parents who feel like me. If the law says he's still 'small' enough to be in some sort of seat, my son will have that seat.

My mother thinks I'm being ridiculous and that it's just a way for the government to get more money from the taxes these seat manufacturers have to pay or whatever... 

I honestly do care. My son almost died twice as a newborn. I have an intense fear I'll lose him so I do what I can to protect him.

I think it varies by state. I live in Texas and unfortunately kids only have to ride in a booster until 8 yrs old regaurdless of height or weight. I really hope this law changes soon. My oldest is 6 1/2 and he will be riding longer than that I am sure. He will stay in the booster until the seat belt fits him just right without help from the booster.

What is the least they can weigh and be out of a booster? Anyone know?

I'm not sure?? I let my son out at 9 and he's only 60 lbs. I need to check that out! My dd is 7 and 50 lbs so she will be in for a while!

Quoting Anonymous:

Is that one or the other? If a child weighs 45-50 pounds at age 8 they would be required to be in a booster?


Quoting queencreekmom:

In Az the law just changed. You must stay in a booster until you are 8 years old or 70 lbs.

I dont know. He has always been a tiny thing and he is my good eater. He just gains really slowly. He was at 45 pounds for the longest time. He finally had a growth spurt.

Nothing at all wrong with being a crazy carseat lady,lol...only takes once of not taking it seriously,kwim?

Quoting DevinAnnesmom:

My 8 year old is in a backless booster. He'll stay there until the law says he can get out of it. I'm not a crazy car seat lady, but I do the best I can with what I have.

Here ya go.

You made a post about a 10 year old in a carseat and didn't think you'd get sarcastic and silly comments?
