Better Be Safe Than Sorry
My aunts have been going to the desert since the beginning of winter. They love camping. I hate it.
I went to see them last weekend, the atmosphere was very festive and fun. All the kids were running around playing and riding buggies.
What pissed me off is that none of them were wearing helmets!
They are kids no more than six or seven years old. They shouldn't have been on one in the first place, but they were piling on 2 and 3 at a time while their parents sat in the tents drinking tea.
I barged in on them and asked what the hell are they thinking letting their kids ride around alone unsupervised with no safety precautions what so ever, only to have them laugh at me and say its ok they have been coming here months before I ever showed up.
They wont be laughing if one of their kids flipped over and cracked their head open. It doesn't take much to buy a helmet, and supervise your children. if your too busy to do that or simply don't feel like doing it then don't put your children in dangerous situations!
I'm so disappointed in them!
