How old does a child have to be to sit in the front seat of a car?
The CDC recommends no one under the age of 13 ride in the front seat. Legally, there is no age limit, but the child should be at least 4ft 9in tall.
My son is 5 and started asking me to ride in the front earlier this year. I told him that only adults and teenagers could ride in the front, so he can ride there when he is 13. That has stopped the questions for now :)
Also, if she likes being able to see and talk to you, try moving her booster seat to the center of the back seat (should be a high back booster, not a backless to be in the middle) and getting the little mirror that clips to the rear view--That's what I did for Jake and he is very happy.
