Tricycle helmets for all


Our children are soaked with the cult of safety the way they would once have imbibed religion or patriotism.
At school, teachers ‘street-proof’ children—that is, they teach them that kidnappers and child molesters lurk in every playground. Television excites children with environmentalist fears that the air and water they breathe and drink teem with toxins, that the food they eat is saturated with deadly pesticides, and that the juice bottles they discard will soon cover the entire surface of the earth.

And they're right. It's just that through millenia of evolution and adaptation we've become immune to bad stuff, or learned to avoid it, or learned to cope with it, or learned to neutralize it. Except for the dumbos that is, but nature has a way of selecting them out if we would but let it.

Not my kids. My son went hang gliding when he was 4. His father designed and built the kite, so I trusted him. He had an 8 foot platform to jump off of with his rope swing. He learned to swim and ride a bike (no training wheels) at 3. He is a grown man now, and travels the world, works hard and walks by Faith. I have done the same with all the kids. Life is full of risk, but, those who don't believe in the Providence of God, are full of fear. They want assurances they can never get. What a terribly boring way to live.

@Leslie, I'm with you. Running scared is not living. I choose Faith rather than fear.
