Overprotect a bit?

Laughing about something I stumbled across, and I just had to share…

Even being as overprotective as we probably (ok, almost certainly) are with our little guy, I’d never consider putting something like this on him:

Call me crazy, but isn’t one of the ways we learn to, for instance, not bump our head into things is by, oh, I don’t know, maybe experiencing a little pain from doing so?

If you’ve got things in his environment dangerous enough that he needs this, you probably need a new environment, not a padded helmet for your child!
