Re: The Car Seat Battle Chronicles
It's all a phase.
My kids get to make their own decisions regarding a lot of things. What's for breakfast, what outfit they want for the day, what color toothbrush they want, etc.
What they DON'T get to decide on is anything that regards their safety or health. They WILL ride in their car seats the way I have them installed (be it RFing or FFing). They WILL get their teeth brushed two times a day. They WILL eat a balanced diet. Etc, etc.
I don't mind being the "mean mom" when it comes to these types of things. Soon enough they will be old enough to realize why we make the decisions we do.
