Do I really need the tether my daughter's car seat?
I'm installing my daughter's new car seat. She outgrew the infant seat, so I'm installing the rear facing child seat. I've got it attached to the built-in anchors at the base of the seat. Do I need to attach the tether that goes from the top of the seat to an anchor at the base of the rear window (behind the headrest)? I'm pretty sure none of my friends with kids are using the tether. Older cars don't even have the anchor anyway. Do you use the tether?
