So when I first ever got on a horse, I didn't wear a helmet. I figured, if I don't wear one riding my bike, then whatever. Ok, whatever, it's just my head. I carried it over into when I had my son. I just recently changed my attitude towards wearing a helmet. I don't ever want him getting up on a horse/bike/ect without a helmet. So I wear mine. Now when we go past a person riding a bike, and they are without a helmet he points out that they should be wearing a helmet. My boy makes me proud.
I understand alot of people have the attitude that it's their head, so they don't have to wear a helmet. But if your decision to go helmetless influenced your child, or a loved one's decision to go without a helmet, would you then wear one?
