To the upset kid. Helmets may look funny, feel funny, or be un cool. But whats more cool. Being alive and well, or in thre hospital hooked up to breathing equipment, cause you cant breathe on your own. Because your in a coma. It does not take much to harm your brain. I lost a great friend because he fell off 1 one 1 step hit his head and was in a coma for 2mts. No chance of waking...sorry if.its a little graphic, but its life. just think what cold happen riding a bicycle and falling off at 5-7mph. Laws are there for a reason. Wear the helmet and stop giving your mom grief.

Good point, we are not in the 1920s. takes a village to raise a child(ren). The town we live in is a wonderful one. I am proud to call it home, obey the rules, watch your friends back and everything is good. We always will have the one who thinks s(he) can do what they want with no consiquence. Life always has a consiquence...wear the helmet, follow the ruels and life will treat you good.
