• Ice is known to be hard, and sometimes sharp. It can cause bodily harm.
  • Safety is primary. Do you want to live with the consequences of vetoing this wish?
  • YES OF COURSE IT IS! ESPECIALLY IF THEY ARE CHLDREN! YES ELMET up! oops had caps on.. hhehehe..
  • Never in my life did I use one or see one used for sledding. Snow is generally soft.
  • We never wore helmets when I was a kid. Might explain some of my old buds nowadays. Might explain some of my aches and pains, too! Personally, I would say use 'em if you got 'em -- or get some if you don't. There were some pretty nasty sled accidents in the old days ... usually involving a steep hill and a tree. I know I would want my kid to wear one. Gotta keep what little brains they have in their heads; lord knows they don't seem to use them when they're small! Go with the wife on this one. She's right -- and who knows? You might get lucky tonight if you give in on this one. ;)
  • I guess it really wouldnt matter if theres no trees or something they could run into. But safty never hurts.
  • I think they're necessary. This google search for "child died sledding" finds 162,000 hits. Read through a few of them and ask yourself if helmets matter.
  • better safe than sorry. You would feel awful if something happened and you knew by them wearing a helmet they would have been fine. Relieve your possible guilty conscience. Thats what I would do. OR don't go sledding cuz its danger anyway to me, but I'm kinda chicken when it comes to possible pain.
  • I've seen a Safety Video that claimed that the human skull can't withstand a fifteen mile an hour direct impact. The video was about bicycle riding, but I'm sure it applies to anything that can go 15 mph.
  • There's no way I'd wear one so why should I make them?
  • find a way to move your body at up to 25 mph and slam your head into a tree, then answer your own question, if you can still form a complete sentence. Really, dude, if you need help with this may you should invest in condoms. When in doubt do what your wife wants, she sound intelligent.
  • Better safe than sorry!!
  • "The amount of it is, if a man is alive, there is always danger that he may die, though the danger must be allowed to be less in proportion as he is dead-and-alive to begin with. A man sits as many risks as he runs." -- Henry David Thoreau, _Walden_
