Choosing the right car seat for your child

One of the reasons that children are meant to ride in car seats is because of the safety they provide in a crash. Most child passengers are required to remain in safety seats until they are large enough to sit in a passenger seat with the seat belt fastened correctly. Once the seat belt fits without the use of a booster seat, children can use safety belts on their own.

Slip and slide: When water parks become a hazard

You love it when your child says that he or she wants to play outside. With so many digital distractions, knowing that your child wants to connect with other children and nature is relieving.

You've written to the city to ask for improvements, and you were informed that more maintenance would take place to make it safer.
