Rewarding Bike Safety May 29 2014, 0 Comments

Rewarding positive behavior is a great parenting technique, Jean Julson in Osseo Wisconsin, has taken this to the streets.  She offered treats to kids wearing bike helmets and was so successful that the local police department and some nearby businesses have joined her.  Now the young people of Osseo have more than reminders to be safe--they've got reinforcement.

Here's a fit method: 2x2x2

With the helmet on your head, the very edge or rim of your helmet when you look up past your eyebrows.

      2 finger widths above your eyebrow.

The straps on the side of the helmet by the ears should meet and form a “V” right under each ear lobe.

      To check, form a “V” with 2 fingers around the ear.

Once the side straps are adjusted in a “V” buckle them. The straps should be snug but not too tight.

       Adjust until you can put no more than 2 fingers between the strap and your chin.
