    Agree with everyone else.

    If he can't see that it's wrong to do so, explain to him that it's jot necessarily about him being a good driver, it's about other drivers and what happens if they crash into him.

    DH said maybe he and Daddy Large should take your DH out for a little "chat" and make him understand how a real dad protects his kids

    I just asked DH. His response was "He is a f***ing moron who is risking his son's life because of his own reckless stupidity. And you can quote me on that"

    So there's another male perspective for him.

    And BTW OP, the fact that he'd take the opinions of random men off the Internet (presumably only because he stupidly thought they'd agree) over the opinion of the mother of his child speaks volumes about the respect he has for you as well.

    It's not a male thing at all it's just him being stubborn and thinking he knows best which is ridiculous, if he would look at all the stats and the possible outcomes of his behavior. He may be a good driver but he has no idea what is happening in someone else's car! So irresponsible.

    My DP and I are young and he double checks the car seat is strapped in tight before we put DS in every time. We had a scare once where we arrived somewhere and DS seatbelt wasn't done up because DS climbed in to the seat by himself and shut the car door. I walked past thinking DP had put him in and opened the gate to leave, DP saw the door shut and figured I had done him up. We check EVERY time now. I'm just so glad nothing happened but neither of us would EVER drive somewhere without him in his car seat.

    I want to be sick that is horrible.

    I would report him and probably leave him if he kept up the attitude.

    Did he give any reasons as to why he did it? Thought it would be fun for your DS? Was too lazy to put him in the seat? (I can only think of ridiculous ones because there is NO EXCUSE for his behaviour. AT ALL.)

    Honestly with his complete disrespect for his sons health and safety it would be a deal breaker for me. Also add the way he reacted when you confronted him i'd be packing his bags right away.
    Complete moron who doesnt deserve to be a father.

    You have a responsibility to ensure your child's safety.

    Either supervise him being strapped in the seat, take the car keys so hubby has to walk with the pram (its 1km, why drive?), change your hours so you can take your child to daycare, quit your job altogether etc

    Your hubby has proven himself to be untrustworthy and negligent. If he drives with bub in the front seat again you are also negligent and liable if anything happens (as you left your child with your hubby knowing he had been negligent in this was previously).

    If I had to do any of the above measures I'd be thinking "what's the point in having a hubby."

    Best of luck...

    My parnter is DD's step father, is young (he's only 22, im 25), and ALWAYS uses a car seat. He has a spare car seat in his car and is a pro at strapping DD into her 5 point harness (DD is almost 6 but only 17kg so she's still in 5 point). There is no excuse for not using a correct child restraint these days. And it's not male mentality, it's stupidity.

    Good luck, i'd be furious too.
