My son will be 8 in January and he is still in a high back booster, but he's a small guy and is only like 43lbs.

Quoting Shari Hogan:" My exhusband is 6'4" and our daughter who is 10 years old is 5'6" already. Her knees are completely jammed ... [snip!] ... to be in the back and I cringe to think of how tall she will be by the time she is 13 at the rate she is already growing."

Same issue! Luckily Iowa has booster laws only to age 6, My 6 and 5 year olds are in boosters but once my 6 turns 7 I am taking him out. My 9 yo is 5'2. He has been out of a booster since 6, he is to tall.

Quoting *Lindsey*:" my daughter is 7 and yes she does. Our booster goes by height and weight...Not by age. Its like 40-100 ... [snip!] ... wrong spot and it could be bad if you ever got in a crash...unless you have a freak 7 year old and shes like almost 5 feet LOL"


If my parents had followed the 100lb rule, I would still be in a carseat!

I disagree with that. The chart that i was looking on earlier says the average height for a 7 year old is 3'7 and 50 lbs...4'7 is an 11 year old female and being 79 lbs.
these are all just averages though. And everyone is differant. Its besides the point. All my comment meant was that to me i considered an almost 5 foot 7 year old to be tall. :)

I have a really paronoid friend that has a 10 year old and 8 year old in a 5-point harness car seat, not even a booster because she saw a youtube video once about a kid how died when he was in a booster.I think that's really pushing it too far. I have no idea how long she plans on keeping them in it.

Quoting MommyingWithGrace:" use a carseat/booster seat? Our state law says children must use a carseat/booster seat til the age ... [snip!] ... no longer had to use one. I didnt know about this until my son turned 5 and I learned he still had to use his booster seat."

DD will be in her 5point until shes atlaest 4 or when she grows out of it after that its a highback booster if you 7.5y/o doesnt mind sitting in a booster keep him there but if he starts complaining or getting embaressed about it id let it go and just put him in a regular seat hes at the normal age where many kids are out of it and many kids are also becoming bullies at that age so if hes doesnt want it anymore i wouldnt make him use it

I work with a woman that is 4'10" and weighs 87 pounds, people tease her all the time about needing to be in a booster.

and i felt bad for my brother that was 11/12 and in a booster haha. The 8 year old is ok...but 10 in a 5 point harness is a little excessive. But to each their own. i would never do it with my kids.

I would have been up until like halfway through highschool.
That wouldn't have been embarrassing.
