I never wore a bike helmet when I was a child. Nor did I sit in a car seat. But my kids sure as heck sit in car seats, wear bike helmets, and wear ski helmets when the ski or snowboard. Times change, we get more aware of dangers, and safety gear becomes more easily available and more commonly worn. We also wear our helmets for ice skating, which was unheard of when I was a kid.
