Do I need a car seat for my child when we travel by plane?
At what age can I turn the baby’s seat forward?
How do I get this freakin’ thing installed?!
We have your answers.
Hop over to our City Dads Group site to find our guide to child car seat / booster seat safety and use. This downloadable document, created by Gregg and Darleen Jobson-Larkin, is based on a NYC Dads Group workshop led by Sarah Tilton, child passenger safety advocate manager, technician instructor and “The Car Seat Whisperer” with stroller and car seat manufacturer Britax.

Editor’s Note: This is the third in an occasional series, written by NYC Dads Group member Niel Vuolo, reviewing parks and playgrounds in the NYC area.Sometimes simplicity is the best thing. That is why the Joseph E. DeVoy playground in Forest Park (71st and Union Turnpike in Queens) is not only one of my kids’ favorite parks but mine.

Every summer since I became a dad, I have taken advantage of Regal Cinema’s Summer Movie Express. For the price of $1 a person, you can sit inside an air-conditioned building. It doesn’t matter to me what movie is playing as long as I can soak in a few minutes of cool air on someone else’s electric bill.
The movie theaters do a great job at making the experience easy on parents too. The sound isn’t as loud as normal and they keep the lights dim in some areas of the theater. If you’re expecting a nice quiet morning at the movies, you’d better stay home. The audience is full of kids talking, babies crying, and parents yelling, “Get back here!” My family fits right in.
If you are looking for ways to cool off or keep your kids from bugging you about boredom, click here to find a participating Regal Cinema near you.
