Health Tip: Everyone Should Wear a Bike Helmet

Health Tip: Everyone Should Wear a Bike Helmet


(HealthDay News) -- There should be no debate or argument in your home when it comes to wearing a bicycle helmet, experts say.

The American Academy of Pediatrics suggests how to encourage children to wear a helmet, avoiding a big battle:

  • Make wearing a helmet a habit, starting with a child's first tricycle ride.
  • Set an example for your child. Parents should always wear a helmet themselves.
  • Explain to your child why it's so important to wear a bike helmet.
  • Give your child plenty of praise, and maybe a little treat, for wearing a helmet.
  • Speak to other parents so your child's friends all wear helmets, too.
