Thanks to Safe Kids Worldwide for the great online tools in celebration of Child Passenger Safety Week. According to data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and Safe Kids Worldwide, “90% of parents and caregivers…were either ‘confident’ or ‘very confident’ they installed their child restraint system correctly, yet more than HALF were found severely misusing child safety seats and booster seats when inspected further.”
I remember when our boys were little looking for car seat installation days; asking firemen to help us install properly; and not wanting to remove those car seats once they were in good and tight.
Here are some great resources:
1. 5-point checklist to verify your child’s car seat is installed properly
2. Find a Car Seat Check-Up Event in your area
Great video outlining the issue from a kid’s perspective…
