Is your seven year old still in a booster seat? We're debating on if my daughter was ready to be out of hers...Thanks!

Law here is 8. We let him out of it at about 8.5. Honestly he really still needs to be in one because of his height but he hates it.

Of course - laws are bare minimums - not what is safe.

No child should be out of a booster prior to passing all 5 points of the 5 step test.

My 8.5 is still in one.

Why would I jump to follow a bare minimum not based on what is actually good for him??????

We were living in PA when our kids were all 7 years old and the law required that they still be in a booster seat.  They were all in no-back boosters until their 8th birthdays.  I'm not sure who was happier to dump the stupid boosters....the kids or me!
