ok not really looking for "tell him they're stupid" replies but I need a global type of reply to a question most skating parents are going to get, "Why isn't he wearing a helmet?"
There are a lot of great sk8 movies and vids out there that we are censoring from our 4 and 2 1/2 year old because we are instilling the whole helmet and pads thing.
"they have been skating longer and know what they are doing" doesn't work as we all know we film and show our stacks.....and then there is the fact that most skaters where helmets for some disciplines and not others....short boarding doesn't count sponsors are still happy slapping them in magazines with no helmets.......
We are never going to get everybody to wear helmets and when we are out our 4 year old actually does ask the skaters in question who usually just stare at him without an answer.
So what do we tell the kids, folks? and remember we could be talking about you at sometime!!
