I am having a major breakdown this morning. For weeks now I have seen pictures of babies not buckled in their carseats, in the seats with loose straps, in the seats with one strap, forward facing, in wrong seats etc. I've also noticed that at daycare dropping off and picking up that it seems like it takes me for ever to get Olivia strapped in and placed. Other parents are zooming in out and so quickly. I started observing and noticed why. About 90% of them are putting their children in the seats absolutely incorrect and wrong.
What does a person do?
I have approached the owner of the daycare about posting on the bulletin board about car seat safety and that way the parents can see what they are doing! Of course in my opinion it is pure 100% laziness and nothing more. But, it is so very frustrating to see this.
Have you noticed this in your state?
After posting this, I was so upset that I called my sister and she gave me some wonderful resources. I ordered 20 child safety seat booklets I am going to put up at the center for parents to read. I also called and talked to the owner of the center about my concerns. It seems I am not the first parent to have these issues. I also have a call in to the coliation coordinator of SafeKids Oklahoma to see if she can set up a car seat check and installation at the daycare.
