What would you do?.. How would you react?

Posted by   + Show Post
You provide a family member that watches your child while you work with a car seat.

This family member comes to meet you with your child in a storm. It's raining heavily foggy etc.

This family member doesn't bring your child's car seat and they've driving approx 20 mins with your kid.

What do you do when they pull up? What do you say? How do you react?


I'm asking bc this happened to me today so I'm just wondering what y'all would do.

I would have flipped a switch. I'd have probably beat the living hell out of someone. But then I have serious anger issues and they seem worse when it is someone being completely stupid.

 I think I would have totally lost my temper and that person would never watch my child again.

At four I would not be throwing a fit... I would just say oh no car away? Ok and put her in the back seat with away belt and go home... I guess I am old school cause my girls were not in a car away at 4 yrs old

I agree, age matters a lot.  

Also was the child buckled in at least?  That would matter the mst to me.

Quoting kirstina:

How old is the child to me that make a difference. If its a small child then I would not have said anything and they just wouldnt baby sit agian. If its an older kid. like 4-5 then I would just tell them that my child needs to be in a car seat its the law and keep them safe.
