I feel very strongly about bicycle helmets. It is something that really makes me upset when I see children riding their bicycles without helmets on. Especially when their parents are there. It's important that they understand it's for their safety. But I know for me I expect my daughter to obey mom's law. I do try to explain the reasons why in a way she can understand. But the bottom line is she's going to wear her bicycle helmet then that's the end of it.
I do know that peer pressure and teasing is a thing and it's unpleasant. Is still is unpleasant even as adults we sometimes still deal with it in some ways. I think that it's wonderful that you take care of your family and your nieces and nephews. I think it'll be awhile before we have to have this talk again. I would hope that we would go the whole summer without having to deal with this again. But if necessary I will correct her again.
Sometimes I wonder why they just don't listen but I'm sure that's an age old question. This is certainly something that could have been avoided. I'm not one who believes in a lot of warnings but hopefully this will be a warning for her.
And I'm sure we will have to have another talk soon
I hope you and your family are doing well
