We were delighted recently when our partners at Safe Kids China asked us to visit and conduct a child passenger safety certification course in Shanghai. Our goal was to teach and certify health and safety professionals in Shanghai about the benefits of using child safety restraints in the car.

Only an estimated 2-3 percent of the population in China have or use car seats. But things are starting to change. A newly passed law will go into effect soon in Shanghai that will require children under 4 to ride in car seats. This is huge step in the right direction.

Car seat safety

Thirty-two years ago, my first daughter, Jennifer, was born. When it was time to leave the hospital, she was placed lovingly in the back seat of our car, resting comfortably in a very nice but hardly secure Moses basket.

That's right. Just a basket resting on the back seat.

I'll never forget the first day of kindergarten for my oldest daughter, Jenny. Sure, summer was coming to an end, but it felt like the beginning of something really special. A new chapter in my daughter's life.

The alarm to parents and caregivers to never leave a child alone in a car sounded louder last week after three more children died of heatstroke in cars.
