Being a parent has got to be the most difficult job that I will ever have. No decision I have made has been a cut and dry decision and I’m always left wondering if I’m doing the right thing or if I’ve made the right decision.
Having three children, I’ve used and continue to use car seats for each of my children. Here are some safety resources from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Ad Council that I would like to share with you.
Twitter: An actual safety expert mans the @ChildSeatSafety account on Twitter, and they will continue to answer any questions that parents have about child passenger safety. This is such a unique resource from a government agency!
Facebook: NHTSA has a Facebook page at http://facebook.com/childpassengersafety where parents can learn about everything from LATCH to locating inspection offices.
Website: The Ad Council and the NHTSA have created a site with all the resources parents need to keep their smallest passengers safe: http://childcarsafety.adcouncil.org/ Find your local inspection station, watch instructional videos, and even take a fun quiz!
As a parent I think we all need to educate ourselves to make sure our children are safe.
