I am not a perfect parent

I am not a perfect parent. I am not here to judge other parents for not strapping their kids in. I want to help create awareness that will make you see just how dangerous it is, so hopefully you make a habit of doing it every time.

I am not a perfect parent. I myself have driven with Zoe just with a seat belt over her and no car seat. Those afternoons I quickly fetch her from school, but the one car seat we have is in my husbands bakkie. So I just use the seat belt for her, because we literally live around the corner from school and what is the harm, right?

Perfect Parent #CarseatFullstop

WELL the truth is there is a large amount of harm in it! Ja sure, I have been lucky in my quickly zipping around with Zoe not in her car seat. But what if I was the unlucky one to be in an accident and have her be killed?! My child dead or disabled because I couldn’t bother to take the extra time to arrange that I had the car seat that day.

How life altering would that be? This beautiful soul taken from us because her parents couldn’t be responsible enough to put her safety first. Imagine the regret you would live with, would you be able to live with it? I doubt I would.
