Is Your Car Equipped With Child Safety Feature?

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

It is amazing how a car helps me in my getting around town especially in running errands.  It is also very convenient in driving my darling daughter to and from school and after school activities. Living here in the USA, I say, owning a car is a very important necessity. But, is your car equipped with child safety feature?

The most important thing to keep in mind and to check when buying a car is it's car safety features. Besides mileage capacity and engine conditions, a car buyer should check of a car has a Latch System installed. The federal government required the cars manufactured after September 1, 2002 to have a Latch System. These are small metal bars located between the back and bottom seat cushions on the back passenger seats.  You can also find these small metal bars behind the over head seat pads. If you haven't seen those yet, go check in your cars now.  These metal bars are used to hook on the child safety car seats.  Installing these safety car seats needs the help of the fire department officer or a police officer to ensure proper installation.

Many people do not consider this safety feature but to me, it is a serious concern. For this purpose, I think a Latch System should not be taken for granted in any way. The safety of our children is at stake.  In addition, we are confident that with this special feature our kids are safer on the road.

Compact Pocket Trumpet

When I was in high school, I tried to join the school band. I found it interesting to play musical instruments and become a part of the school's special events. Whenever there are parades and special occasions, my school's band joins and performs.  Then band playing is awesome to hear and watch.  

But I didn't get the chance to audition to join the school band because I didn't have an instrument.  I have been wanting to play the trumpet, though. I couldn't find someone who owned one that I could rent. Trumpets are great musical instrument. It's sound is fun and lively. 

My advice is, if you are interested in playing a musical instrument, try to learn playing pocket trumpet available at Musicians Friend . It's compact size is very convenient to carry around. Learning to play a trumpet is enjoyable especially if you will play classical music.
