Your child should always be safe in the car, even if you’re not behind the wheel.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends:
- Making sure your car seat fits properly in the other person’s car. If it’s not your car seat, make sure it’s installed properly.
- Ensuring that any driver has a valid license.
- Making sure there’s always another adult in the vehicle to supervise the kids, so the driver can stay focused.
- Making sure that any driver knows what to do in an emergency.
