actually a lot of kids at some point will fight being confined to a child seat. I had incidents where I had no choice but to find a place to pull over to pacify my gal cos she was screaming so badly but after that it is back into the childseat again.
When it comes to safety, I will not compromise. My kids can scream and cry and protest all they want but no child seat means no going out if we are taking mummy's or daddy's car. Even when we were driving during our holiday in Australia, I rented childseats for both my kids. Eventually they get use to it. Now in fact, my boy refuse to get into my car if his booster is missing which poses a different kind of challenge. haha.
