My son is almost 9 years old and in the 3rd grade. He is on the small size, like in the 10th percentile range. He is only 3 ft 11 and weighs 49lbs. Because of his size he is still in a booster seat.
He doesn't mind when it is just us. But when he has his friends over and we go places, he doesn't want to take it and he hates that if he goes with someone else he has to take it as well. No one has ever said anything about it, but I know it bothers him that he has to use it for safety reasons. He is just too small not to be properly restrained in a car.
Are your kids still in booster seat? Do they hate having to use it?
