    help me put together links to email SIL before she gets to drive DD around!!

    Whoever's still awake and looking for a project, please help. I just got an MA for SIL's car and she'll be driving dd sometimes. I'm teaching her how to install it and use it properly tomorrow. She already knows I'm a car seat nut and I already told her I was gonna send her some videos and articles and then explain a few things to her.
    I'm thinking ERF (not that she'd turn dd on her own, but just so she understands), prejectiles, unrestrained passengers, why not to take dd off the seat even for a second, harness and bulky clothes, etc. It cant be too much that she'll be put off but she has to understand it if she wants to be allowed to drive her. Any thoughs?
    TIA!

    Well, start by sending her here.

    then:
    www.cpsafety.com is a good one, and you can pass on mine as well. (in my sig.) On my links page there are a ton more.

    Thanks! I wrote her a whole email last night explaining a bunch of things and with links to some videos that illustrated what I was talking about. I included ERF so she understands what we're doing, projectiles, unrestrained passengers, installation videos, harness positioning and pinch test. Also explained the force being weight times speed thing, what to do if dd gets sick and not to let her eat in the car. I think I got it all covered. Not sending her here though, cause then she'll figure out who I am and stock me
