Urban kids have all the fun! At least if you’ve got kids like mine who love big machines. When we lived in a rural area and traveled, getting to and from museums and parks was half the fun of the trip. We rode on subways, light rail, city buses, and even ferries — they were all part of the adventure. Now that we live in a big city, we get to ride these awesome vehicles to get to doctors appointments, school, play dates, and even the park!
You’ve heard the numbers before: car accidents are a leading cause of death for American children. That’s why we want every kid in the right car seat for his or her age and size for every trip: properly restrained children are very well protected in car crashes. Children need proper restraints on an airplane too, but what about those other ways you can get places?
