Do you let your child sit in the front seat?

my DD is in 4th grade, she is 10. I'm noticing a lot of parents at school are letting their kids sit in the front seat. 

How old/big was your child when you let them sit up front?

Yeah, but he's 18, so he normally sits in the driver's seat.

My oldest is 8.5, she weighs about 70 pounds, tall enough to barely sit without a booster and no she does not ride in the front seat ever. She will not until she is 12/13.

no legally thats not even okay where I am until they are 13. As an EMT I know better and wont ever allow other parents fails to influnce me to follow them. the backseat is safer that is that. my 16 did a handful of times at 14 and 15 and then well now she still dont unless she has to (she has no lic yet btw taking dr ed this summer). the others have not and never have even asked...

DS will be 12 next month and is 5'4" so yes, he's been sitting in the front seat. DD is 7 so she'll be in the back in her booster for awhile.
