and I do not want to cause drama, that is not my intention..but I think having 7 year olds in a booster seat is dumb. I was not in one at 7 and I turned out just fine. Had I have to do the requirements now back then I would have had to be in a booster seat until i was 11. such BS.

    You are dumb. Protecting a child is SMART..My son is 9 and still in a booster seat!!! There are reasons for them...A lot of things done "back then" would end up being much more dangerous today!

    So just 7 year old.What about 8 year olds or 6 year olds. ???
    If you don't want to keep your kids safe then that's on you. But personally I want to the safety precautions because I don't want my kid having to be pealed off the pavement incase of an accident.

    Dd is seven and still in one. But thats mostly because she's never asked NOT to be so thats just her seat in the car. I think if she started to put up a big fuss, I'd look into it more closely. But i figure as long as she's not fighting it, I'm ok with it.

    My dd is 7 and loves her booster seat. It sits her taller making the seatbelt fit properly.

    if my son is in the right mood he will like it, but i doubt he will still like it if he ever sits without one( obviously not until its legal)
