As parents, we love watching our children progress. We eagerly cheer as they begin to crawl and walk, and sniff back tears as they head off to their first day of preschool donning their new backpack. We genuinely get excited to watch them move into newer and greater things.

We’re here today to discuss why you should keep your child harnessed in the car for as long as possible.

You may be slightly jealous at how chic and professional your single girlfriend looks on a daily basis, but will she be able to hang doing your job?
