Wow, it grabbed my heart.. Sigh, I would never want to see parents have to go thru this horror feelings of having your children die before parents. Yes, My children are strictly belted up. May God bless Kyle...:angel:

While the video was playing, a beautiful song was being played, here are the words to the song:

"Far Away"

This time, This place
Misused, Mistakes
Too long, Too late
Who was I to make you wait
Just one chance
Just one breath
Just in case there's just one left
'Cause you know,
you know, you know

[CHORUS]
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I miss you
Been far away for far too long
I keep dreaming you'll be with me
and you'll never go
Stop breathing if
I don't see you anymore

On my knees, I'll ask
Last chance for one last dance
'Cause with you, I'd withstand
All of hell to hold your hand
I'd give it all
I'd give for us
Give anything but I won't give up
'Cause you know,
you know, you know

[CHORUS]

So far away
Been far away for far too long
So far away
Been far away for far too long
But you know, you know, you know

I wanted
I wanted you to stay
'Cause I needed
I need to hear you say
That I love you
I have loved you all along
And I forgive you
For being away for far too long
So keep breathing
'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore
Believe it
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
'Cause I'm not leaving you anymore
Believe it
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and, never let me go
Keep breathing
Hold on to me and, never let me go​

A 5 point harness is the only way to go. I absolutely refuse to put Lilly in a car seat unless it si a 5 point. The old three point with the padded cross bar thing is a joke. It si very easy to have a child ejected in those seats.
I watched the video last week. If I rememjber correctly, there was also an issue of using the latch system instead of the seat belt to restrain the seat. I think I heard that the car seat failed to lock, causing ejection? Didnt they also mention that the death could have been avoided if the latch system was used? Both of our cars have the latch system but I refuse to use it. It is a great system, but none of the cars have the latch system set up for the middle of the back seat. To use it, you have to place the car seat nevxt to the car door. The chances of a car hitting your car at the rear door with enough force to penetrate the interior of your car and hit the car seat is much higher thatn the chance of a seat bale failing (if the seat is installed correctly). I feel safer with the seat in the middle, herld in place with a seat belt. The chances of a car hitting your car hard enough tto penetrate so deep that it would hit the car seat while secured in the middle of the car is very slim. In fact, if a car hit you that hard, no matter how you had the car seat, the chances are very slim that anyone could survive.

This thread was made around the time I wasn't online much. It brought tears to my eyes watching that video. I feel so bad for that poor little boy who died. I understand how important it is for a child to be safe in a car seat. I always check & make sure my kids & the seats are very secure. Just takes a couple minutes. 5 point harness is the way to go. Never put my child at risk less then that. I see the booster seats for kids at 30lbs? Oh please not my son, he's over that & my daughter is close to 30lbs. Just looking at them & the booster seat, I thought to myself....You gotta be kidding me?? I can't believe that would be the minimum for kids that age. But anyways, thanks DeafMommy0407 for sharing this. It really touched my heart. Sorry it took so long for me to respond to this. Don't ever think anyone don't care just because they don't post right away ok?

I'm so sorry to hear this tragic loss. My kids are older now ages 19 and 15. They are still wearing seat belts ever since day one after coming home from the hospital. If I ever have a grandkid (hopefully in near future), I'll make sure the child is safely strapped. The song is very touchy.

Its important that you have to read babycenter website that good information.. The babycenter can tell you about baby development stages and its useful.You prepare the baby needs eg, car seat, clothes and many things.

It's only been 5 hours since you first posted this thread. Sometimes, nothing can happen between 1 pm and 6 pm.

Sometimes, people will just view the video... but have nothing to say. Don't worry about it. Someone will post, eventually. :)

Yep, I have seen this video before.

It is sad - it is very brave for the sad victim's parents to go through - we must remember Princess Diana should be here ONLY IF she wore a seat-belt at the back of the car.

Car is dangerous for everyone. take care.

I am new and just watched the video. I have 3 children the littlest is 4. I cannot imagine what you have been going through. God has reasons for this if not just to show the rest of us what to do. A friend of mine sent me a poem when my mom died...Those we love are with the Lord and the Lord has promised to take care of us. If they loved Him and we love Him they are not far away. You will see him again. I think that what you did here is very brave and thoughtful. Thank you, all we ever try to do is keep our children safe It's sad to see that the ones that are buckled up aren't safe and some parents don't take the time to buckle up their kids.

Thank you so much for posting this video. My children are still young but have long since outgrown their carseats. I thought they were safe in the seat belt. I never in a million years considered that I could lose one of my children like this. I watched this video and bawled because all I could think was "that could have been my son or one of my daughters" I can't thank you enough for the knowledge you have given me. That precious little boy didn't deserve to die this way. I will make sure my children do not suffer the same fate. Again...Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

:cry: ~ break my heart...

So young boy doesn't deserved die... Breaking my tears..

Doesn't matter how many percentages safety the car seat as long you feel trust with car seat brand of it... 5 point car seat is making you feel 100% safe as long you feel comfortable with this and go for it... ensure make sure it's secured safety seat belts latched with car seat.

*Breath carried away* so beautiful video clip...
Rest of other members will view this and will help you guys learn this excellence educational!

This is so sad. Its scary to lose a child. My husband and I always make sure that the children are secure and all. SOmetimes they would put their seat belt over their shoulders. We told them to put it back where it should be. They said it hurts their neck. We could put towels over the belt to prevent hurting their necks. We rather to have them to be saved than sorry.

I feel so bad for the family. Thanks for sharing with us Deafmommy.

Many places sponsor a Child Seat Check station , usually at a local Wal-Mart, in which certified car seat specialists will check your car seats to make sure they are properly installed, etc. I took mine there and was shocked to learn I even made some mistakes that could prove to be fatal - and I was positive I had done it right! I had a brand new car seat and it was RECALLED...I didn't get any kind of notification even though I had sent in the card...whoa! Your local police station should have (or at least can refer you to one) a certified car seat specialist who can look over your car seats to make sure it's being properly installed, etc. Also, you may be surprised to know that not all car seats are compatiable with all cars/trucks/suv...there's a website (I can't remember where) that you can check to see if your car seat is compatiable with what you are driving.

one place you can go is the fire department. Also, depending where you are, they have free car seat checks at malls or other big areas to make sure everyone's car seats are installed right. If I remember, they say 9 out 10 car seats are not installed right.
