How does this legitimate concern about another child’s well-being tailspin into turning Princess Diana‘s car accident into a wagging finger? Or manifest into Facebook comments that clearly weren’t all that thought out? A recent Reddit thread provides a small window into such an elusive process as one poster asks if he/she should inform Facebook friends about their seemingly lack of attention to car seat safety based on posted photos. And what do you know, Reddit responds with a resounding YES.
