And I suspect that for many of the kids whose disposition improved upon being faced forward, they were responding to the improved angle.
yep - this! Worked for our dd, who is still rfing (now happily) at 31mos. Try a different seat at a more upright angle. DD loves to look out the side and back windows, and she uses the mirror to see what I'm doing in the passenger seat when dh drives (I can't sneak any snacks without her seeing! )
