What Would You do??

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I may be a nut but my DS is 4.5 and I still  RF him. I just saw my exbf drop our DS off and he wasn't RF. 

He knows how I feel about it. I just assumed he did it also. 

I am so worried. Like I said I am a nut.

I just don't know what to do???????

Then be a parent and teach your son that not everything is the same at both houses, rules aren't always going to be the same at both houses but he is to respect both parents!

Stop being controlling.

Yes I plan to RF as long as possible. My DS is getting all messed up b/c i make him RF and his dad doesn't. He is now complaining when he is with me.

It is very different but extended rear facing until at least 2 is important. If a child at 6-9m is ff they run a high risk of internal decapitation because their spinal cord is not completely fused. In a crash, a child that is rear facing is cradled into the seat where as a child that is front facing, their head and limbs are thrown forward while the car seat holds the trunk of their bodies back. A baby that young's body can not handle the force of that kind of impact.

Just wanted to let you know why we rf past 1 here :-)

I don't think there's anything you can do if he already knows how you feel about it. What he's doing isn't illegal.
