Re: Are there any dangers to harnessing a child past a certain age?

If she does well with that for a few weeks, then widen the radius where she can go in the booster. Take it slow, remind her that she has to sit still or she won't be safe in the booster. Ease her into it.
I do this with my 6.5 year old, just easier in the winter when it is -40 to do up a seatbelt and not a harness. I'm not sure when I will let her fully booster as she is 41lbs. DD2 is 4.5 and special needs, I did let her try the booster for a 2 block trip (small blocks here) and she wormed out of the belt, so no go for that for now!
