Re: Help! What to say to DH's family member's improper car seat usage!

Personally, I wouldn't say anything. 99% of the time, it's not received well. No one likes being told how to parent, and often they'll intentionally not listen, and will essentially "rebel" by taking a stance against yours.

However, I have had fairly positive experiences posting safety videos and articles on my own Facebook. People see it, don't feel threatened, and have decided for themselves to make changes.
Put the information out there, and let them take or leave it.

Good luck, mama! I know how frustrating it is to see people endangering their kids!

Parenting consistently and in love is all the matters. Your label or philosophy won't raise good children, your example will.
