A story as told to Safe Kids at a Tweens: Back, Boost, Buckle parent engagement:
A 4th grader at North Shore Elementary said, “I had to go home and show my sister that her seat belt was wrong. I brought her to my mom’s minivan, and showed her everything I had learned at school. The most important part to me was that she not put her shoulder belt behind her. I don’t want her to get hurt in a car crash.”
