She's 7, uses a booster. She's been asking and many of her friends seem to sit in the front of the car.

Then I got thinking would she actually be safer in the front? There is a passenger airbag in the front and also the front has side airbags which the back of the car doesn't.

So not sure where she's best.

def safer in the back. I have a 7 year old and she uses this argument, but I'm not comfortable with her in the front ever.

Most dangerous seat in the car.....

Airbags are not designed to be compatible with a child's weight and height , even on a booster. She's be more vulnerable in front to side impact too. Safest seat is rear middle.
