As long as they never fall asleep in the car and end up all slouched over, sure. We've never owned a car with three shoulder harnesses across the back seat, and we have 3 kids. so when the youngest can no longer be harnessed, one of her siblings might have to sit in a lap only belt.
There really isn't any evidence to the contrary, either, though. Until someone can point me to an actual study which states otherwise (and I evaluate the information - I don't trust the average person to correctly interpret data), I'm perfectly comfortable with my 7 year old being in a harnessed car seat and actually prefer that.
Right. There's no evidence either way. I have nothing against extended harnessing -- as I wrote, my own child was harnessed past age seven -- but since "as long as I can come up with the money to buy it" was brought up, parents shouldn't feel pressured to spend big bucks on big seats IF children can use boosters properly. (If they want to, super. If they feel they *need* to, that could maybe be re-examined.)
