They added: “It will be one of the many tantrums you will have to deal with in her little life and that’s called being a parent.”
“A second wrote: “So instead of helping her husband calm her child and put on her mask.
Taking a different view another said: “That’s ridiculous, man I thought kids were exempt at that age.
“They sent the car seat WTF can you do without a car seat that’s ridiculous.”
