Falling down is a fact of life, but according to Kelly Forsyth-Gibson, the inventor of the Thudguard helmet for toddlers, it’s preventable and should be avoided. I remember when learning to walk was uncontrolled, with bumps and bruises as a right of passage. Should we really be protecting our children from all harm that can befall them? Are helmets really necessary? Why not knee pads and protective cups too? I am living proof that bumps on the head while learning to walk may be dramatic and tear-filled, but do not contribute to a brain becoming dislodged from it’s moorings, free to roll around for eternity like a loose ball bearing in a skateboard.
