My mom never used a car seat for me and I turned out fine
Or, the straps are just fine (when they're loose), I'm a careful driver, and besides we're hardly ever in the car. These words make me cringe.
I think of them every time I pass a little pink cross on my way home. Last week a little two year old girl was in an car accident. She was strapped into her car seat but aparently not well enough because she was thrown from the car and died later at the hospital.
I can't imagine the grief this family is going through. And the thought that her death could have been prevented makes it so much worse :*-(
