Touchy Subject

Well I hate to talk about either because they are both touchy subjects, one being carseats. I am not a total carseat nazi but I want my children to ride in a 5 point harness with a tether as long as possible. Something like 80% of carseats are installed wrong. I have always had Britax. I have a couple roundabouts, a couple marathons, a regent, and a frontier. I have a Peg pereggo infant seat which I def won't use again bc it gets hot. But anyway. I want my kids as safe as I think they can be. Studies show that seat belts aren't made for a 4 year olds body. I am not going to go into a huge rant about it bc I know its a touchy subject with people but I am really irritated bc I found out that my x and his gf who are equally unintelligent, drove her to Murfreesboro in a booster seat. I have bought him a carseat. He has a marathon. I am going to buy him another carseat when she outgrows that one. I have offered to buy one for his moms car so her riding in a booster seat wouldn't be an issue bc I know they don't have the money to go buy a carseat. I am not saying I expect them to buy a Britax just a carseat with a 5 point harness and a tether. I know they can't afford that. I said I would buy it! I am just upset. The least he can do is keep her safe in his time. I don' think that I am asking much. You just want what you think is best for child and when you can read research that tells you something is best for your kids you want that. Watch this little video clip. Every time I see it I am glad Caroline is in her Harnessed seat.
