DD1 has a friend over for a sleep over, the kids wanted to go for a bike ride/skate board ride.  The friend is on the skate board.  As they were about to leave I asked the friend where her helmet was.  She told me it was broken and her parents were buying her a new one.  I insisted that she borrow one of ours she has borrowed DD2's.

Have I done the right thing?

The girls(DD1 and her friend) looked at me like I grew horns.

Yep. Right thing IMO. You better go find your pitchfork though, it'll accessorise wonderfully with your horns.

I hated wearing a helmet at that age, so you would've got a filthy look from me too. But you did do the right thing.

I wonder how long her helmet has been "broken" wink.gif

No not a trick question I was just worried I have now socially stunned DD1 by being the mean nasty horn headed mum who makes her friends wear helmets when it doesn't seem to concern the child in questions parents.

    Issues around children learning to read are rarely out of the news. Which is hardly surprising – becoming a successful reader is of paramount importance in improving a child's life chances. Nor is it surprising that reading creates a virtuous circle: the more you read the better you become. But what may come as a surprise is that reading to dogs is gaining popularity as a way of addressing concerns about children's reading.
