Can the weight sensor for the passenger airbag be adjusted for a person under 100lbs.?

I just bought a new 2014 Jetta Sedan 4 days ago. Yesterday, I had to take it in for service because the airbag sensor for the passenger seat was not registering a person in the seat. I found this out when my 10 year old daughter got into in the passenger seat. I sat in the seat and it still did not shut off the "airbag is off light." The service department manager says the passenger must weigh 100lbs for the airbag to work.
Now I will have a 4 day old new car that my child cannot ride in the front seat. I was sold a vehicle that the manufacturer has discriminated against families. Can the sensor be adjusted? Or do I need a lawyer?
