Getting Toddler to Ride in Carseat and Wear Clothes
My daughter from a young age has been able to manipulate her body and squeeze out of any car seat restraint. Despite correcting her, and disciplining her to this day we have a very hard time getting her to sit in her car seat with a seat belt across her safely. She is 3 now.
To help remedy this we put her in a toddler seat with regular adult seat belt across body to help encourage her, but she doesn't like the feel across her body and refuses the chest portion of belt and as often as she can get away with it, will take her legs out of the lap belt portion. We have pulled the car over, taken her out of car, threatened the police man will arrest her, and we almost completely go no where with her, because she won't be safe. We cannot take any family trips or anything, because we are afraid of her getting out and getting hurt in a car wreck. I was hoping for some ideas? She also hates, hates, hates clothes and will only wear one thing out in public - any ideas?
Thank so much,
