Introducing the new Car Seat Basics Workshop
Starting in August 2018 The Alliance of SWMO will be hosting its first Car Seat Basics Workshop. Every year we have learned more and more about what parents know and don’t know about car seats. It has come to our attention that parents just want more education! A little more education about car seat basics will help reduce injuries due to improper installation and/or improper fitting.
The car seat basics workshop will cover:
– Understanding car seat options; Rear-Facing Convertible, Convertible, High-back and Low Back Booster
– Belt Placement
– LATCH system vs. Seatbelt: Pros and Cons
– Understanding what a Tether is
– Car Seat Add on’s: What is ok and not ok to use
Who is invited to the workshop?
We encourage parents, grandparents, foster parents and anyone else that is in charge of any kid(s) in car seats to attend. Safety is our priority!
