As parents, we all want to keep our kids safe. But, according to a new survey parents are taking kids out of booster seats way too soon. Trust me, I know it’s tempting. I just checked my car seat book the other day to see where my 5-year-old daughter should be. To me, it seemed as though she didn’t need her car seat anymore because she’s in Kindergarten. But, age has nothing to do with it. It all has to do with weight and height. In order to keep your child as safe as possible, the recommendation is to keep your child in a car or booster seat until they are 57 inches and weigh between 80 and 100 pounds. If you don’t, you are increasing their chance of getting seriously injured if you’re in accident.
