Carpooling Parents Aren't Using Booster Seats
Do your kids need a boost when riding with their friends? Most likely, yes! According to a study out today, while 76 percent of parents use a booster seat for their own child, only 55 percent require it for other children they are driving. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that tots remain in a booster seat until they are 4' 9" tall and between eight and 12 years old. When carpooling to school or extracurricular activities, many parents seem to be letting those rules slide in order to accommodate more kids.
