Why do you argue like it's a parenting style/choice?
When it comes to car seat safety, why argue about what's safe or not? You are either doing it right, or you're doing it wrong. If you're wrong, you are NOT RIGHT. You CAN NOT argue that you're right. There are too many tests, and experts (techs) that have been educated for YOU to aruge that it's okay because some jim bob from what'cha'ma call it's fire station said it was good enough. GET A CLUE!!
And yes, I'm a tech.
PLEASE take a look at this if you're interested in admitting that you might be doing something wrong, and actually doing something about it.
Phew. Sorry, I had to say that after that mess of a post that I just read!!
