The important thing to remember is for your child to wear a helmet, even if it is not coordinated, every time they ride their scooter. It is impossible to predict what other people will do or where sidewalks might have holes or be uneven. Even though the scooters are safe, a child can be jolted off one.
Without a helmet, the child could hit their head on a tree, rock, the ground, a vehicle, building, or other stationary object and suffer a concussion or worse. Protecting your child’s brain is very important for their future health and happiness.
