Correctly installing a car seat is an extremely important task for parents and caregivers. Unfortunately, it’s also one that often seems downright impossible.
New Zealand father Jordan Watson captures the frustration of dealing with complicated car seat instructions in the newest video on his popular Facebook page, “How to Dad.”
“How To Install A Baby Car Seat” parodies instructional videos by showing two installation “methods” ― 1. Effortlessly placing the car seat in the vehicle and correctly attaching everything with ease and 2. Wrestling with every aspect of the car seat before ultimately giving up and opting to walk everywhere.
The car seat struggle is certainly real. In the U.S., an estimated 75 percent of car seats are installed incorrectly. But luckily, there are many resources available to help parents keep their little ones safe in cars ― from informational websites to child passenger safety experts in local communities to car seat inspection stations.
It truly takes a village.
