Car Seat Safety: Parents Putting Kids At Risk
Putting a kid into a harness seat every time you go somewhere can be really annoying. Necessary, but annoying.

Recent research from the National Child Health Poll indicates that many parents don't understand the safest way to seat their children in a car. Director of the poll, Dr Anthea Rhodes from the Royal Children's Hospital in Melbourne runs through when it's safest for a child to be out of a booster seat, and when it's okay to turn a child's seat forward facing.
