You’re a Bad Idaho Parent if Your Kids Don’t Wear Helmets When Sledding
I learned something today that made me question, for a moment, how much I actually care about my kids. I was reading about places to go sledding and tubing around Twin Falls and came across an article that basically said 'if you don't make your kids wear a helmet when sledding, then you are a bad parent'.
Should Idaho Kids Wear Helmets When Sledding
I felt like a bad parent when I read that because the thought had never crossed my mind to make my kids wear a helmet when playing in the snow. It’s hard enough to get them to keep their hat and gloves on. The reason that I felt bad was that it makes sense. When we go skiing or snowboarding they wear helmets and don’t have any issues.
We got a light dusting of snow today, and sledding was one of the first things the kids mentioned they wanted to do while they got ready for school. Now I’m wondering if I need to find their helmets before they go play.
Do You Make Your Kids Wear Helmets When Sledding
At least I’m not the only bad parent out there since I haven’t seen anyone wearing helmets in Twin Falls while sledding. Or is the danger of sledding not as big a deal as the article makes it seem? The story on Study Finds says that 2 out of 3 parents don't make their kids wear helmets.
Do your kids wear helmets when they go sledding or tubing?
