If you have small children, you know that child car seats are a super-important—yet potentially complicated—part of keeping your child safe. But even if you don’t have children, you probably know someone who does, and understanding the right way to install and use a car seat is still crucial information.

To mark National Child Passenger Safety Week, this episode of the “Talking Cars With Consumer Reports” video podcast is a reminder that the littlest passengers in cars, SUVs, and minivans rely on adults to ensure their safety.

Consumer Reports’ child car seat experts, Jennifer Stockburger and Emily Thomas, both of whom are Certified Child Passenger Safety Technicians, discuss the most common car seat mistakes and how you can help parents install a car seat the right way. From infant carriers to booster seats, Jen, Emily, and host Jon Linkov talk about the ins and outs of safely securing children—as well as the myths and erroneous information that is all too often shared.

This episode offers new information to even the most seasoned parent. You might consider yourself an automotive know-it-all who friends turn to when they have a question. Watch or listen to this episode to add to your bank of car-related knowledge.

As with other “Talking Cars” episodes, this one is available free through Apple Podcasts. (Subscribe to the audio or video.) You’ll also find the video on YouTube.
