It's not because I don't care or anything, the weight of the helmet on a two year old is like you skating around carrying a bag of sand on your shoulders. It makes you top heavy. Think about it.
I am not anti-helmet, I think they should be used when necessary by inexperienced skaters who cannot maintain their balance or by skaters who prefer to wear one.
He wore one before he could maintain his balance on the ice and still does at stick & pucks, etc.
Oh, that's your kid, didn't realize. Congrats, skilled little guy. We'll differ on helmet use, I'm fine with that.
