So I wrote a post last week called Tell Your Kid To Stop Telling Mine That Her Booster Seat Is For Babies.
I received a lot of public, private, and Facebook comments. Someone wrote, "Watch out! If you write about a carseats you'll get those crazy people who will most likely point out mistakes in the photos you are sharing!"
Yes, this did happen. A lot of people told me that my daughter looked to be too tall for the high back to be attached to the booster seat. Someone else suggested that I raise the head rest. Another person stated that the seat belt placement looked all wrong.
But I didn't mind any of the comments. Truly. There were a few comments I got where the people might want to work on their tone. There's no need to come across as rude. Politely state what needs to be done and I promise, you'll get your point across. I'm happy to say most people were kind with their suggestions.
And I took their advice!
I decided to remove the high back part of the booster seat.
Natalie is pleased too. (She was in her leotard, ready to go to gymnastics.)
So yes. If you do write about a car seat, know that you will probably get comments. But most of the comments are simply to keep your child safe. Not to make you feel guilty.
I appreciate all the people who took the time to help me keep my daughter safe.
