    Adhd and car seat.

    I had a friend ask me to watch her son who has ADHD. He is very active and does not sit still. I'm taking my two boys and him to movies.

    I have no idea what he rides in in my car but I am thinking harnessed in the GN? He will fit I can tell his size next to my boys. I can not imagine him in a booster.

    Opinions?

    If You don't think he will sit properly in a booster, he needs to be harnessed. How old is he?

    I would harness. Maybe you could re-harness your son for the trip too so the friend doesn't feel bad about it?

    My ginormous 6yo is still harnessed because of his mental health issues. I tried boostering him for a while when he outgrew his fr but I was having to pull over all the time. I would definitely harness him if you've got a seat available.
