Has any of your kids ever gotten out of their carseat while you were driving?

My 3 year old neice about gave me a heart attack. We were driving to the store and all of the sudden I see her out of her carseat. I will probably get bashed. I pulled over and spanked her little fanny good.

Same thing happen to us. While driving our son got out of his car seat. My husband spank his bottom. He never got of his car seat again.

My 3 year old granddaughter can unbuckle her carseat, but she never has when we are driving.  My kids were barely in carseats, the laws were not as strict back then.

My son is 3.5 and has done the same thing. I stay calm, look for a safe place to pull over, struggle with him a bit, go through a meltdown, buckle him back in, and continue on.

The struggle is the only thing that worries me because I'm 20 weeks pregnant with baby number 2.

Yes.  My daughter unbuckled herself around that age.  I pulled over and she get a stern talking to.  She didn't do it again.  

ETA:  In her case, she didn't do it out of defiance.  She just finally figured it out!

I've never had this problem. My 5 yo can't even undo the clip.
