Helicopter Parent Crawling Baby Helmets

Helicopter parents are obsessed and making their kids depressed.

Thudguard.com is peddling a product they call the 'infant safety hat'. Part of the pitch is to prepare kids for helmet use later in life, and part is to placate the over-protective impulse in some.

Looking closely at the device first notice the kids ears are covered.  Bam.  Hit from behind - didn't hear it coming.

The helmet doesn't seem to prevent a crawler from swallowing loose change, or drinking from the dog's water bowl.  But it sure does let the errant parent put them on and walk away guilt free.

After all, when you put on a helmet doesn't that make you invincible?   Ask skier Sony Bono who, along with his helmet became one with the trees.
