bikes and helments

Do you make your child wear a helment when they are riding their bike?? I am a young mom and I make my 4 year old wear hers but none of the children that ride up and down the street have one on.

  • It's up to you... We don't make our boys where a helmet unless they're on their dirt bikes... We live in the country so when they're on their regular bikes they are usually in the yard and not on hard pavement...

  • yep.

    and if I say its're in the backyard they put up a stink until they get their helmets on.

    they've all taken bike safety courses at school - so don't even think about hopping on without the helmet.

  • Yes I make sure they wear one. If my kids don't put on the helmet then they do not ride the bike. I think it's important for them to wear it. I do let them pick out their own helmets though because then it's not as hard to get them to put it on and keep it on.

  • Yes, we make our kids, 4 & 10 wear helmets. None of the other kids do, but that's on their parents.
