    what age to start sitting in front seat?

    My son is turning 13 this weekend, and has been asking to sit in the front seat on occasion. He's 5'2", 150lbs. Any information or suggestions you can provide would be great, thanks!

    Thirteen is the national recommendation. You've done a great job keeping him in back until now.
