Shit You Learn When You’re Not A Parent: Some States Require Grade School Age Children To Sit In A Car Booster Seat
Who knew that the comment section of a fame whore’s Instagram page could be a place of learning? The off-brand Barbie styling head that was brought to life by a fame whore fairy to be a star on Bravo, Kim Zolciak, posted a picture on Instagram of her 6-year-old son @kashbiermann (yes, he has his own Instagram page. I mean look who his mom is…) sitting in a booster car seat. And as the moms of Instagram fought in the comments over whether or not Kash is too big for a booster car seat, I learned that in some states, kids of a certain height are required to sit in a booster car seat. Call me dumb (it wouldn’t be the first time today, I have talked to my mom a couple of times already), but I never knew this. How times have changed. When I was 6 years old, car safety consisted of my mom or dad throwing their arm over my chest in the passenger seat when they broke too hard, or my uncle screaming, “Hold on to the side, I’m about drive over a bump,” out the window as we rode in the back of his pick-up truck.
This is the picture of 6-year-old Kash that brought on the wrath of the mommies.
Kash does look pretty tall in that pic, but his dad Kroy Biermann is 6’3″ and his mom is 5’9″ without her wig. If I asked Dlisted’s resident medical expert, my mom, about this, she’d say, “THE HORMONES, MICHAEL! THE HORMONES IN THE FOOD ARE TURNING OUR CHILDREN INTO GIANTS!!!! Kind of like how your diet of wine and candy bars is turning your stomach into a giant…” I figured that Kim just used her Photoshop wizardry on Kash, like she has done with her other children.
Some in the comments said that Kash looks too grown to be in a booster seat:
Kim. He don’t need that booster seat NO MO.
I’m sure he’s over 4”9 and weighs more than 50 pounds .. you’re doing too much unnecessary stuff and this might be dangerous as he is sitting higher than his natural height
big and doesn’t need the booster anymore. That baby grew fast!
Girl this done went viral…you know damn well he’s too tall to be in that damn booster seat
While others defended Kim:
I have a 10 year old and a 8 year old and guess what they are still in booster seats. It is called being a parent and looking out for the safety of the child. If their feet dont touch the floor and the belt dont sit across their chest then they should still be in one.
So happy to see he is still in a booster!! More people should educate themselves on car seat and booster seat safety and requirements!
Every state is different, but in Georgia, the state Kim terrorizes, children who are under the age of 8 and shorter than 4 feet 9 inches have to be in a child restraint thing. Kim responded to those saying Kash is too big for a booster seat by posting an Instagram Story showing that Kash is a little under 4’6″.
I think the most shocking thing about that Instagram post of Kash is that it doesn’t seem like Kim is selling anything in it. Is it really possible for Kim to post something on Instagram without using #ad? My brain can’t process that. Kim must be down-low hawking booster seats now. But wait, she does mention his hair. That’s obviously a covert ad for hair-growing vitamin gummies for children.
