In California, kids have to be in car seats until age 6 or 60 pounds. As you might expect, no self-respecting six year old wants to be in a baby seat. Parents are tired of the whining, so what can they do? Feed the little buggers. Parents are plumping up their little polliwogs to get past the weight limit and stop their kids from whining.
