comment How can I help my child handle peer pressure regarding television?
This is a fabulous answer! +1 and welcome to the site. For Torben, I would only add to this, that if you say, "you may choose two shows to watch per week" (that if you have okayed as appropriate shows) The kids have a little wiggle room and practice with making decisions. It also gives them the ability to say, "mom and dad let me watch ___ shows per week and I chose ___ because I like it a little better." They can still participate in the conversation in a very adult way - many of their peers are likely to have similar limits too.

comment What should I look for in a new car (automobile)?
Even the ones that do get in there properly in the first place are hard to keep in properly once the child is old enough to get in and out on his or her own too.

comment What should I look for in a new car (automobile)?
I too, am past that phase, but in my state there was a lot of talk on the news about it. I'll grant you evening news isn't always the most reliable - but the state made it law that new cars had to have it as an option installed based on increased safety. That increased safety may simply be because it means the seat is installed correctly (I do know that in 2004 over 60% of seats were not installed correctly - based on a study done by the CHP). Apparently its harder to get those seats in and keep them in correctly without LATCH at the very least.
