Kids, bikes, helmets and safety

To my wonderful readers, I am asking all of you for a favor. Summer vacation is approaching and kids will be out riding their bike a lot more. I want to raise awareness and inspire kids (including my own) to wear helmets when riding their bike or scooter.

I am asking all of you to flood my Facebook page with pictures of your own kids wearing their helmets! I hope to get many, many pictures to show my children and your children that it’s not only a safety precaution, but it is cool to wear a helmet and that it is not silly.

I’m not looking into all the technical and precautionary data and such. Kids do not think that way. They just think that it’s a pain to put on and keep on and that they look silly wearing a helmet. I just want pictures. Kids learn by example.

I plan to take the pictures and create a post for the blog. I hope that you would then show all of your kids the blog post to encourage them to wear their helmets.

So look through your photos and post them to the Facebook page. Tell your kids to pose on their bike with their helmet on so they can lead by example.

I can’t wait to see the pictures! In advance, a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who helps!
