and I do not want to cause drama, that is not my intention..but I think having 7 year olds in a booster seat is dumb. I was not in one at 7 and I turned out just fine. Had I have to do the requirements now back then I would have had to be in a booster seat until i was 11. such BS.

Yes, keeping your kids safe in a car crash is SO stupid. *eyeroll* What kind of loser would want their 7 year old to have the best chance of surviving?

Why even use seatbelts at all? I'm assuming you must have a large life insurance policy on your kids since you wish them dead.

"Haha, Jane is a loser! Her mom keeps her in a booster since she is too small to use a seatbelt alone."

"Kevin, dude, he was so cool. Too bad he died in the crash."

I have gotten use to it. When he was a year he looked like a 3 year old and I use to have people at parks actually come up to me and say stuff like "you're a horrible mom for not potty training that child! How disgusting you let a three year old shit his pants!" I was like "well... Ok but he's a year old so.... "

Or "I'm so sorry, it must be so hard to me a single mom with a delayed child" because I wasn't wearing my wedding ring and he wasn't talking like a three year old.... Again I was like "uh well, he's actually advanced considering he is only 15 months old...."

It cracks me up when people say he will be a legal giant and I Should put him in basketball now so he can be famous lmao

Quoting Anonymous:Do people look at you weird when he acts like a 4 year old? People think there is something wrong with my son because he acts like a 4 year old but they think he is 5 or 6!Quoting Anonymous:Right?!?! Dang my son just had his 4yr check up and he is 49.5 inches and 53 lbs.

He is solid muscle though. Lookin at him he is tall and lanky but if he hits you (in jujitsu) it hurts like a MF

My niece is going to be 12 and she still can't ride in the front seat by law, because she is still under 100 lbs. But she's so tall for her age that I do think it gets a bit ridiculous for some kids to have to do. It wasn't that long ago she still had to ride in a booster.

I agree my son is 6 TODAY and the seat belt lays across him fine without the booster with it I have to use the back of the booster to bring it back right, seems stupid to me. My son is 54 inches. I think by seven he will be over 4 feet 11 inches. ..

By the way I was in a car accident when I was 7 and they only had lap belts, car flipped...I am fine

This is what I want to know too.  Where do all these moms live that crashing on a regular basis is a normal occurrence!?
