Say something or ignore it?

If you post a photo of your child in a car seat on Facebook and in that photo there are obvious safety concerns would you want one of your friends to let you know or would you want them to mind their own business?

I see so many major safety concerns and I am always afraid to say something because I don't want to offend anyone. But if no one tells you how are you supposed to know there is a problem?

    When that happens, I always send the person a respectful and informative note.

      I guess it would depend on the problem and safety concern.. And then.. how do you approach it.. The best way to approach it for me.. is texting them or emailing and saying, "Hey.. I had the same car seat and a friend had pointed out what I did .. which is what your seat is doing and told me that it was wrong.. or it was unsafe"

      Or something like that.. I always try to put ME in there.. as though I'm not telling her what to do, but rather i learned the same thing from experience..

      I get what you are saying but some things like after market products or snowsuits are in the pictures but not allowed.

      After market products are luxury items such as strap covers, cute covers, pillows for under the head or body, etc. Those items are not necessary and make the seat unsafe.

      I do not want to attack anyone or make them feel bad, my intent if I did say something would just be to share information they might not have known. As new parents there is so much to know and we can't possibly know everything. Someone shared the info with me when I had my first baby and I was grateful because I had no idea I was doing something dangerous. I admit I did not read my car seat manual completely from cover to cover. In the manual it does say that after market products void the warranty. I would never call social service for something like that.
