I don't care about carseats

So... I am well aware of all the laws and recommendations regarding car seats and I follow them.

My children stay rear facing until 40 pounds, etc.

But, when I see other people choosing to risk their children's lives by not following this, I don't care.

It doesn't bug me.

I am super annoyed by other things that are parenting taboos but not this one.

It's the one thing that doesn't bother me because I figure if you are dense enough not to care what happens to your kid in case of an accident, then you deserve to have a dead child because that is technically what you're asking for.

I know other parents who are horrified by that more so than parents that spank or refuse to attempt breastfeeding and I think they're weird.

I am amazed how intense and self-righteous the pro-carseat moms are. 

That is something that doesn't affect anyone else truly, unlike things like breastfeeding trends or raising spanked children, etc. 

Ya know?

Unless you want to buy me a convertible carseat shut up. Her high back booster seat is doing just fine.

I let my kids ride without carseats sometimes.  Who the fuck are you to tell me how much I love my kids?

A dead child, really? That's a little harsh don't you think?

Your doctor is an idiot.

That is actually not safe for anyone - let alone a 7 year old.

Get some new advice - your child is not safe like that. There is a reason lap belts have been banned for years.

He's actually a very good dr. When we were all younger we never had a seatbelt on.

If they don't use them sometimes, what's the point of ANY time? Why not just leave them out of them. Do you agree they're needed or NOT?

And I agree with some of the sentiment of the op. As an educated emergency worker, as well as mother car seat lover, I support child passenger safety awareness and progression.

You either get it or no. Love your kids sure. Care about their safety? Obviously not. And yes I always post anon here. They shouldn't have given me the option lol.
