Question by Cimba00: Exactly where should a toddler automobile seat be? Can it be in the back seat of a van?
A question about car seat rules…is there any rule against placing a toddler’s (16 months) auto seat in the extremely back seat of a van? I have always place him in the middle seat so I could attain him from the front. I would like to temporarily get rid of the middle seats which signifies he’d be in the quite back. His four year old brother would be beside him. It doesn’t look like there would be any rule against it, I just believed I’d toss the question out there to see if any person knew for sure.

Very best answer:

Answer by Sarah
I was told that the really back is where they are safest. I am not certain there is a law about that even though, as extended as they are in their seat and buckled in.

Give your answer to this question below!

Nothing is more thrilling than becoming a parent. Parenting is an art, and you will have to try hard to become good at it.

Many times young children have trouble changing. Abrupt changes can lead to stress and crying fits.

It is necessary for parents to get away, together or alone, apart from the children. Even if you can only manage to find a babysitter for a couple of hours or have to ask a family member, the break will do you good. Stress can get the better of parents who constantly care for their kids, and this results in increased tension in the household.

Regardless of their age, children who walk to or from school need to have retro-reflective material affixed to their person in a highly conspicuous spot, such as on their backpack or clothing. This reflective material comes in convenient Velcro strips. This helps crossing guards and drivers see your kids better, especially when it’s early in the morning.

Children are very different from one another. Just because one parenting style is effective with a child does not mean it will be as effective with another. This applies to both rewards and punishment. Keeping all of this in mind, still use the same techniques you have had success with in the past.

When your family rules are termed with positive vocabulary, it reinforces peace over conflict and encourages your children to coexist. Telling your children “hands are for helping and not hurting” is better than just saying “don’t hit” because it gives them an example of what to do instead of just telling them what NOT to do.

Think of this article as a good starting point to develop good parenting strategies. Parenting is a unique experience and is different for everyone. There is no perfect way to parent. Among these tips, take to heart the ones that sound useful, and give them a try. Keep in mind that parenting can be exciting, but relish the experience because children grow up before you know it.

    Firmware Upgrade Brings Massive User Interface Changes, November 12, 2010

    Boxee has addressed some of the concerns I highlighted in my review with firmware updates. Please see the bottom of the review for updates.

    —–

    Out of the box, the Boxee Box runs the familiar beta version of the software, which is familiar to me as a prior Boxee user. Everything works fine, from what I tested, though the edges of the screen were cut off a tiny bit (not enough to cause a problem). While exploring all the options, I found that a firmware upgrade to version 1.0 of the Boxee software was available. I installed it, the unit rebooted, and it automatically started a quick-and-simple screen calibration utility. That calibration was useful, because the stock firmware had some overscan problems (that is, the edges of the screen were cut off) on my TV.

    Version 1.0 brings with it a new, simplified user interface. I immediately had trouble finding my way around, and was a little disappointed that the experience was different than what I was expecting. My main problem with the new interface is that it now takes several more clicks to access local files (that is, anything on your attached drives or home network). That’s my stuff, and that’s what I primarily want a video player to be able to play. The old interface allowed you to toggle between your videos, and all available videos, very easily, once you understand where the option is. With the default firmware, after a minute of configuration, I was able to select “Shows” from the home screen and see just my shows. Now, I have to use other, more complex and time-consuming methods to do the same thing, such as “Files > Shows” or “Shows > Files”.

    The new interface does make it easier to start searches (just start typing), and is very attractive. I just would rather that it allow me to put my videos front-and-center. Networked content is fine, but my own content should have primacy over it. I think that new users will not have a problem with the interface, but experienced users should know that changes are in store for you.

    Networked Content

    I had no problems streaming SD and 720p HD H.264 and DivX files from my NAS to the Boxee Box via my wireless-N network. Internet videos play well, but some Internet video sources are kludgy. Playing a video on Fancast, for instance, will open a web browser, showing the web page and the video in a small box. You have to use the remote to move the mouse cursor to the tiny “full screen” button and click it to get the video to play full screen. Good luck doing that on the couch, 10-20 feet from the TV! This is a big deal because the new Boxee software puts networked content front-and-center, in the “Most Popular” movies and shows pages. It’s wonderful to be able to watch (ad-supported) shows that you haven’t paid for, but it’s a pain that you have to hunt for the full screen button, which looks different on every website, to do so.

    Apps, on the other hand, are fantastic. TED and YouTube work exactly as you would expect, and there are dozens more available. Netflix and Hulu Plus apps have been promised; Boxee is working out the arrangements and hope to have these available by the end of the year (early next year for Hulu Plus). I hope for their sake that they do. Competing devices all support Netflix, and Netflix is, in my opinion, one of the most compelling sources for staming content.

    Linking your online Boxee account to Twitter and Facebook seems like overkill at first, but it actually is pretty compelling to be able to watch videos that your friends are sharing. The RSS app is great, too. Through the Boxee website, you can subscribe to a whole bunch of video and audio streams (podcasts). Then, you can launch the RSS app and browse through the stream. It’s very nice. I don’t bother sharing what I watch on TV with my Facebook friends and Twitter followers, though, but I could if I wanted to. I think that if a large number of people I know used Boxee, this would be a lot more useful.

    Another quibble I have with the UI is that “Watch Later” queue shows your most recent additions on top, and you can’t sort it. To find the next episode of a series you’ve been watching from the queue, you have to scroll down. If I’m going to the trouble of queuing videos, doesn’t that imply that I want to watch them in order, not in reverse order?

    Hardware

    The unique shape of the box is controversial, but it is very small and you should be able to tuck it away somewhere. The remote uses RF, instead of IR, to communicate with the box. Therefore, unlike most (if not all) of your other components, you don’t need a line of sight. I actually decided to put the BoxeeBox behind my TV; I can’t even see it, but the controller works perfectly fine! The only thing better would be to have Boxee software integrated directly into my TV.

    The box is very capable. Until new video formats arrive on scene, I don’t see an immediate…

    This review is from: The Boxee Box by D-Link HD Streaming Media Player (Electronics)
    Customer review from the Amazon Vine™ Program (What’s this?)

    I received the Boxee Box immediately after its release in 2010 and, after testing, wrote a scathing 1-star review. Since that time, the Boxee Box has received several firmware updates. As of July 2011, I no longer feel the Boxee Box merits 1-star and am thus reworking this review. Consider this review up-to-date as of July 2011.

    Let me begin by stating that I am new to the Boxee platform. I’ve occasionally watched a missed episode of network TV on my MacBook attached to my TV; but only as a last resort. I probably visit youtube.com about 4 times per year and never for more than a 10 minute period. I pay for DirecTV and Sirius XM and have 4 networked DVRs. In short, aside from the fact that I’ve been hacking computers since the early 80s, I am apparently not part of the target demographic for this product.

    General observations:
    - The box is nearly silent. This is a very good thing.
    - The box is very small (about the size of a box that a baseball would come packaged in).
    - The box consume 12 watts of power while running, while idle, and while on standby. If you turn it all the way off, it consumes 0 watts. It seems to run just over 100 degrees while powered on.
    - While the unit itself is small, the mini power brick in the power plug is larger than typical-sneaky and annoying.

    REMOTE CONTROL
    The remote control gets (some) raves and is probably one of the coolest things about this device. It is also the main hardware component of the solution that makes the Boxee Box a hassle. The remote control is RF which means it cannot control most devices in your house. And likewise, your other remotes can’t control the Boxee box unless you add an IR adapter. Forget about hitting one button to turn on the Boxee Box and your TV. This is a major source of frustration for me as the Boxee Box remote is essentially 3 buttons and a 4-way navigation tool. Because the button layout is perfectly symmetric, and the buttons are black, I frequently hold it upside down and hit the wrong buttons. This is annoying and often disruptive to what I’m watching/listening to as I will accidentally exit the pandora or viewer apps! I’ve had the Boxee for over 8-months now and this still frustrates me every time I use it.

    What is cool about the remote control is that when you flip it over, it has a decent sized keyboard! When using the search features, this keyboard works like a charm.

    In practice though, my usage doesn’t result in much data entry so I don’t get the payoff of the keyboard. Unfortunately, I DO prize being able to reliably pause/fast forward/rewind the Boxee Box remote control is not too good. This can’t be fixed with firmware…

    I did find one way to improve upon the remote situation- I plugged in a wireless mouse and keyboard. The wireless mouse made navigating the Boxee Box menus noticeably easier.

    Unfortunately, the mouse does not work for jumping to a spot in a song or a video. Also, when surfing the web on the Boxee Box, the wireless mouse is unable to scroll content up and down and the roller wheel is completely disabled.

    INTERNET VIDEO
    The video quality of some of the Internet content is surprisingly good. Generally speaking, if you’re paying for the content, it will look as good as the best high def feed from your cable/satellite provider. And generally speaking, if you get content for free, it can be pretty bad.

    The Wired application has a bunch of movie trailers and I honestly couldn’t tell that I was watching “downloaded” content. The picture quality rivaled the HD quality I get over the air from DirecTV. I found this impressive. I have a 6Mb/s internet connection which is certainly not a slouch so I’m sure that helps. Video quality can vary greatly though. Some of the stuff on youtube borders on unwatchable (though that is the nature of youtube, not Boxee Box).

    My wife and I tried to watch an episode of CSI Miami on the Boxee Box and eventually gave up. It wasn’t because CSI Miami is pointless and stupid, it was because the experience of trying to pause or navigate through the program was too awkward. At one point I tried to pause the show but accidentally hit the “menu” button. This took us out of the show and lost our spot. Then we tried to relaunch it and fast forward to our old location. This proved fruitless with the Boxee Box remote control.

    During the 2010-2011 Women’s basketball season, I ended up watching quite a few games on the Boxee Box as the only way to get them was on the Internet. I had to be careful not to touch anything once I got the game on screen but generally speaking this worked well and I enjoyed it over watching the same content on my laptop.

    I am a Netflix streaming customer and the Boxee Box has a Netflix application. The application works well. Playback is first rate with excellent video and…

    This review is from: The Boxee Box by D-Link HD Streaming Media Player (Electronics)

    Some perspective on me: I have never written a review but felt it was necessary in this case. I have been streaming video accross my network since the Buffalo Link Theater (7 yrs ago). I consider myself somewhat of a computerelectronic geek. I, like many others, have been excited about the release of the Boxee Box. I have tried several other similar alternatives (X-Box, LG Blu-ray player, WD…etc) and NOTHING even comes close to the experience I’ve had so far with the Boxee.

    Pros
    -Quality hardware
    -compact
    -qwerty keyboard on back of remote (brilliant!)
    -User interface (needs to improvement though)
    -Zippy fast getting around (except for downloading cover art for thumbnails)
    -Lots of content providers (more to come for sure, Netflix, etc)
    -Streams every file I have thrown at it (my movie collection is over 500 strong with different formats).
    -there are many more

    Cons
    -As others have commented (the qwerty remote is unreadable for me without extreem light (come on, grey on black letters!)
    -no options to customize the user interface more (advanced settings?)
    -many apps load a webpage with the video in a small window with the “full screen” option small and difficult to brows to with the remote (needs much improvement).

    If you want to look at your digital piture collection, play your digital videosmovies, listen to your music collection and play content from the web all through a great interface on your DH TV and through your Home Theater system, this box is a must for you. I promise, you will not be disappointed.

    I am confident this box will only get better.
