I'm having a garage sale and I put out my kids old carseats and the extra ones. I figure they've never been in a crash, are not expired, and some of them are only a year old. I had one backless booster i used to use with my 6 yr old as a spare (I still have him in a booster, this was just an extra one I no longer have need for). A mom with her nearly 3 yr old son asked to buy it. I refused to sell it to her. He only weighs 31 lbs, by what she was telling me. She just doesn't want to "hassle" with a harness anymore. I told her that I couldn't in all good conscience sell her a backlass booster for her son. I told her why. She says "I've only been in one wreck when he was a little baby, it's not likely I'll have another one." I still refused to sell it, for my own conscience sake. She asked me why, I told her again. She says "Oh, I didn't know that stuff. You're serious, aren't you?" I told her I was and she decided to keep him harnessed. YAY! I feel good about that decision.

Later on a mom of an 8 yr old came buy and bought it from me.

That's awesome! I really hope she doesn't turn around and get one for her anyway, but I'm SO glad you passed along the right information for her and her son.

You rock!
