Concussions, skull fractures and brain hemorrhages.

Now that we have your attention, consider that all these injuries can be suffered by children seeking fun and physical activity.

Thus, the proliferation of helmets for the sports children play and the activities in which they are engaged.

"Sure, it's a pain," commented Cheryl Hostetler, as she helped her protesting 4-year-old daughter strap on a bicycle helmet for a humid afternoon ride through their Lake Township allotment. "But we decided long ago that there are too many chances to get hurt really bad without a helmet."
