This is something that we, as co-hosts, have been mulling over for a long time and I finally feel like I need to go ahead and put it out there.

Our Car Seat Safety board is supposed to be a positive place where members can come for advice and information. Let's keep the board positive please. Let's not drag the board down with posts about the car seat misuse you saw posted on FB, in another playroom, in the parking lot when you were shopping, etc. if there is nothing positive to be said. If you helped a person, that's different and actually really positive because it helps to show our JM community our willingness to help other. But if you're thinking about posting something just for the sake of saying "OMG this person is doing it wrong!" please don't. I, too, am guilty of it in the past. But we need to move our board from that. We're not negative Nancys. We want our board to be welcoming.

I hope you all understand

Also, do NOT post pictures of children that don't belong to you (unless you have asked and gotten permission from the parent/guardian).

I completely agree with this and thank you for putting it out there. I could only imagine being a parent looking for car seat safety information and finding a board where I had been made fun of or bashed for my unknowing misuse.

I just want to highlight that, because it's absolutely true. I don't think anyone purposely misuses a seat or installs it incorrectly, they just don't know better (even if they should). That's why boards like this are great, to show everyone the importance of car seat safety!
