I bought a Monterey booster for my 65lb 6 year old ds and he refuses to ride in it. It is a fight each time we get in the van to get him to stay in it. At this point I just want something else for him, something he may like more. I know some would say that I should just MAKE him ride in it and not worry about what he wants but I am not fond of the seat either to be honest. I bought it strictly for it's latch feature and then later realized our van doesn't have latch in the only spot his seat fits anyway. Anyone have any suggestions?

Does he dislike the Monterey (if so, why?) or does he dislike the idea of being in a booster? What was he using before the Monterey?
