Heath News: Car Seat Safety for Kids

Car Seat Safety for Kids
by Marie



This recently posted YouTube video is a reminder of why all kids should be in a properly installed car safety seat for as long as needed (till age 6 where I live.)

I recommend till the child is at least 80 lbs. There are seats available for kids up to 100 lbs and I have one in my car that I use to transport my cousin who is 8. The state law no longer applies to her, but she is going to be in one until she is too tall or is over 100lbs. I, myself, rode in a safety seat till age 12—till I was too tall for it.

It is the responsibility of the adult(s) riding with kids to be sure that they are all “buckled in.” And don’t forget to use the safety clip that comes with the car seat.

That video puts things in perspective. It's been a hectic here today and watching that video brought a tear to my eye.

It should put PERSPECTIVE in everyone's lives. That is real life, not the internet or blogs.

Thanks for sharing.

very sad and great information. Another thing many forget that car safety seats should be attached to the back of the regular seat very tight, there should be hardly any space left. I saw how some people don't even check how loose it's hooked up...

MANIFESTO

Don't think for me. Don't assume what I want to hear or read. Give me facts. Give me reasons. But not yours. Bring me debate. Enlighten me. Today, accountability is masked behind anonymity; bylines are hidden by zeros and ones. Everyone publishes; everyone is "in the know." Ethics are non-existent. Speculation is king. The truth is masked and a hostage. Empowered by our minds, WE ARE THE FREAKSPEAKERS!
