Thank you for sharing this story. I am that mom. My youngest are 5 year old girls and I still get the eye roll before my husband moves the clip higher and pulls the Witches with hitches shirt tighter. But it’s always kept them safe. I’ve been that nagging mom. Some moms take it in stride and others get pissy.
I’ve even been cursed out and unfriended because I pointed out misuse. I always try to make it so I give the compliment sandwich but even then people just think I’m too paranoid. I’m happy to get help. I could read the manual all day long and watch a video, but I’m just not good at that kind of thing. I’m just not. I don’t understand why they make it so if one little thing is wrong it could lead to catastrophe. There has to be an easier way.
Witches with hitches shirt, ladies shirt and tank top
This is me. I try and let people know in the kindest, most non-judge mental way possible that it’s incorrect and even have lost a friend in doing so. What makes me so mad is the Witches with hitches shirt who continue to strap their kids in wrong! I see pics of kids with loose straps, low chest clips, twisted straps, heavy coats pics where the straps might as well not even be there! Knowledge is power, people.I get made fun of for having my 9 year old still in a booster. Uhm. Hate all you want. He’s not at the right height or weight to ride without one.
