Quoting Andrewsmom70:

Does your child sit in the front seat? No. 

What are the laws/recommendations? I got by what my car manual says in the minimum to sit safely in the front seat. I'd have to look up what that is because they aren't anywhere close to sitting in the front seat yet. They are only 8 & 9 years old and still in booster seats.

My daughter DOES sometimes sit in the front seat.  She is 11 and tall (as in 5 ft.)

ALWAYS with a seat belt.

No, my kids are only 5, 3, and 11 months. As far as I know they recommend them to be at least 12 before sitting in the front seat.

My kids do not sit in the front seat. I honestly haven't checked the laws since moving to Florida. My kids are 5, 9 and 11.

I see ALOT of kids at my kids school get into the front seat of cars though.

Yes.  I don't know or care what others do or say. It's right for our family/car.

I break the law & will let dd6 sit in the front seat from the bus stop to home, which is about a block & only through the trailer park. I drive because I go straight to the bus stop after work

Yes my oldest does but she is almost 16. She was not allowed until she was 12. My son is only 6 and still in a booster seat. No front until he is 12.

No, too young, he still sits in a high back booster in the back.
