#KidsBuckleUp $100 Amazon Giftcard Giveaway

Are you the parent of a tween? Read on about seat belt safety and you can win a $100 Amazon gift card. Giveaway is open to US residents and ends 5/7. Good luck.


This post is being shared on behalf of Bloggin' Mamas. #KidsBuckleUp $100 Amazon Giftcard Giveaway. Ends 5/7
Blog­gin’ Mamas would like to sup­port the Ad Coun­cil and The U.S. Depart­ment of Transportation’s National High­way Traf­fic Safety Admin­is­tra­tion (NHTSA) with pro­mot­ing the Seat Belt Safety cam­paign, which asks par­ents of chil­dren ages 8–14 to make sure their kids are con­sis­tently and prop­erly wear­ing their seat belt every time they get in the car.

Par­ent­ing a tween involves com­pro­mise. But here’s one rule that should not be up for debate – the car doesn’t move until every­one is wear­ing a seat belt. If you say it, and if par­ents buckle up them­selves, your tween will buckle up. And if they don’t, that’s a fight worth hav­ing. It might just save your tween’s life.

Did you know that one child pas­sen­ger age 8 – 14 is injured every 8 min­utes in a car crash? From 2009 – 2013, 1,522 kids ages 8–14 died in car, SUV and van crashes. Of those who died, almost half were unbelted. As chil­dren get older they’re some­times less likely to buckle up. The per­cent­age of child pas­sen­gers who die while rid­ing unre­strained gen­er­ally increases with age and is most pro­nounced among 13 and 14-year-olds regard­less of seat­ing position.

Check out this Battlefiled MiniVan Video:

Buckling-up is an important habit to instill in children at a young age. Parents can lead by example by wearing a seat belt themselves and by insisting on seat belt use for every passenger in their vehicle. Seat belts and safety seats, if used correctly, dramatically reduce the risk of fatality or injury to children.

  1. one of the links was broken, one thing I do know is that I teach the young ones to always buckle up no matter what, and make sure my children have proper seating for my grandchildren

  2. I can't get the link to work. Buckling up is very important, my rule, the car doesn't start moving till everyone is buckled.

  3. I learned from the infograph that booster seat is needed between the ages of 8-12,I didn't know a 12 year old could fit in a booster seat.

  4. Though the link doesn't work, my trick for getting kids to buckle up is that I tell them the car doesn't move until the seat belts are on.

    Thanks for a generous giveaway!

  7. I learned you should never let a child put the shoulder belt under an arm or behind the back, because it could cause severe injuries in a crash. They may not like the feeling at first, but eventually they'll become accustomed to it.

  8. I thought for sure that every state had a seat belt law but they don't. I think that is just crazy. Thank you!!

  9. I learned a child is ready for a seat belt when he is tall enough to sit without slouching, is able to keep his or her back against the vehicle seat, is able to keep his or her knees naturally bent over the edge of the vehicle seat, and
    is able to keep his or her feet flat on the floor.

  11. Follow these pointers—from setting the example by buckling up to making sure all children under 13 ride in the back seat—for maximum safety.

  13. The lap belt and shoulder belt are secured across the pelvis and rib cage, which are better able to withstand crash forces than other parts of your body...
