CHILDREN's HELMET FAQ's!
My child will not wear a helmet:
You might consider:
· Children learn by example. They learn from their parents, friends and family members.
· Comfort. Make sure the helmet is the correct size for your child. Children's head size can change quickly.
· My head hurts!: Make sure the child is wearing their helmet correctly; this makes all the difference to wearing a helmet. When it fits well, the child will probably forget they even have it on!
Purchase a helmet that fits the child now, not one they will grow into. Many of Allsporthelmets.com helmets include small, medium, large sizing pads to ensure a proper fit.
