Seat Belt Safety Giveaway

This post is being shared on behalf of Bloggin’ Mamas.#KidsBuckleUp $100 Amazon Giftcard Giveaway 
What is it about having to put on the seat belt???  I am a seat belt wearer hands down.  It is a learned behavior at this point…I get in the car and I put on my seat belt.  It’s completely automatic.  My son, on the other hand, has not adopted this behavior into his car riding repertoire.  Every single time we get in the car, it’s the speech, “Sebastian you have to put on your seat belt.  Why is it that you don’t put it on right when you get in?  Mami doesn’t say it because she feels like being a pain; it is for your safety!”  Luckily I don’t have to fight this daily battle with my 14-year old, Sophia.  She is like me.  It’s complete on auto pilot.  I will not give up though…It may be a daily battle, but it is war that I will win by instilling this automatic behavior in Sebastian as well.  It’s all about consistency, like training a dog, but rather than a dog, I’m training my son…close enough LOL! 

Blog­gin’ Mamas would like to sup­port the Ad Coun­cil and The U.S. Depart­ment of Transportation’s National High­way Traf­fic Safety Admin­is­tra­tion (NHTSA) with pro­mot­ing the Seat Belt Safety cam­paign, which asks par­ents of chil­dren ages 8–14 to make sure their kids are con­sis­tently and prop­erly wear­ing their seat belt every time they get in the car. Par­ent­ing a tween involves com­pro­mise. But here’s one rule that should not be up for debate – the car doesn’t move until every­one is wear­ing a seat belt. If you say it, and if par­ents buckle up them­selves, your tween will buckle up. And if they don’t, that’s a fight worth hav­ing. It might just save your tween’s life. Did you know that one child pas­sen­ger age 8 – 14 is injured every 8 min­utes in a car crash? From 2009 – 2013, 1,522 kids ages 8–14 died in car, SUV and van crashes. Of those who died, almost half were unbelted. As chil­dren get older they’re some­times less likely to buckle up. The per­cent­age of child pas­sen­gers who die while rid­ing unre­strained gen­er­ally increases with age and is most pro­nounced among 13 and 14-year-olds regard­less of seat­ing position.

 Buckling-up is an important habit to instill in children at a young age. Parents can lead by example by wearing a seat belt themselves and by insisting on seat belt use for every passenger in their vehicle. Seat belts and safety seats, if used correctly, dramatically reduce the risk of fatality or injury to children. phone buckle ice cream buckle Resources -Visit for more info about buckling up! -Learn when to transition your child out of the booster seat to a seat belt and find out how it should properly fit. are the #1 influence on children’s seat belt usage:
