I read a wonderful article in Parents magazine about keeping kids safe by choosing the proper helmet for them.  Apparently buying a high-quality bicycle helmet, and making sure that it fits correctly, protects your child a great deal more than just putting any old helmet on him.  Here are a few links that I thought you might find useful, as you protect your precious child’s precious head:

Bicycle Helmet Safety Institute  www.bhsi.org     Look for “A Buyer’s Guide to Bicycle Helmets” and “How to Fit a Helmet.”

Safe Kids Worldwide   www.safekids.org     Find information on preventing airway obstructions, falls, fires, burns, poisoning, and drowning.  There’s also information on bicycle safety and car safety.

Now I know how to protect Paulie when he gets his first little tricycle!  🙂 🙂
