Who makes their kids wear helmets when riding their bikes/trikes?

I was trying to get the kids to wear their helmets but my oldest daughter told me only the "special" kids wear helmets. Do you make your kids wear head protection when they are out riding?

  • Yes I sure do. Our 2(-almost 3 in oct.) year old son knows better. He gets the helmet for us to put on.

  • Yes we make all of our kids wear helmets when they ride! It's the law here but my daughter had a bad bike accident last week and wearing a helmet saved her from a head injury!!! They really are for their own good!!

  • I don't know if it's a law here, but it's the law of my house that the kids wear their helmets. And if they are caught without them, no bikes for a while. But they never even challenge it, it's just a fact of life like seatbelts.

  • All kids are "special" :-)
    She wears hers all the time. She knows, if there are wheels under her feet/butt, there is a helmet on her head. The day she tries to go against this is the day she looses the riding toys.
