Park the bike until he follows the rules of wearing his helmet. My oldest son got in a wreck on his dirt bike when he was 13 years old and had to have abdominal surgery- he landed on a tree stump and it sliced his belly open 6 inches. He also hit his head and had a slight concussion. The surgeon said (by looking at his helmet) things could of been a lot worse if he had not had his helmet on. I agree with tyfry, no matter how responsible the kids are, accidents happen. My son was also responsible but his front breaks locked up which sent him flying over the handle bars.....something he couldn't control.
