Current research suggests that kids should not ride in the front seat until they are 15 yrs old. It has nothing to do with the height or weight of the children but more to do with the fact that their bodies are chainging so rapidly due to puberty and the force from the airbag or a crash has different results on their bodies. See this link and this link. For the second link, click on "Boosters and Belt Fit" and then scroll to the bottom. You will see "The back seat is the safest part of the car for all passengers. Recent research shows that children should ride in the back seat until they reach age 15."
ETA: My DSC will not be riding in the front seat until they turn 15. The risks are greater than the benefits IMO.
