We are in a carpool for our kids to get to and from school. Their mom drives in the morning and we pick up in the afternoons. Last year my oldest son also attened this school, so since he was the oldest (14) he got the front seat. He no longer attends this school, so he is no in the car during carpool. I have an eight year old and a six year old, obviously, they sit in the back seat.
The problem is that since the front seat is open, the carpool kids want to sit in it. The kids are 12, 11, and 10. But they are short and don't meet the height and weight requirements for sitting in the front seat. The age for front seat is 13 in our state. Their mom lets them switch off and sit in the front. I am not comfortable with that. Our own child had to wait until he was 13, and he was tall enough at 11.
I don't want to cause a fight, but I am not comfortable with them in the front.
Would you follow the law, or would you follow their mom's rules?
