If you are a mother of a teenager boy, I can understand your fears and worries for your son’s safety. We all know that it is normal for teenage boys wanting to grow to be like real men and not be restricted by age limit. Teenagers are known to secretly taking their cigarette puffs, drinking alcohol, learning and riding their friend’s motorcycle without their parents’ knowledge because they think it is one of the coolest thing to do. Learning to ride a motorcycle in itself is not that dangerous. It is dangerous when they are doing it without a license and without being equipped with motorcycle safety apparel.
Some mothers will come up with all kinds of stories to dampen their teenager’s interest in motorcycling. But those who know their teenager well, know that the more they try to dissuade their teenager from motorcycle, the more they will want to do it. Smart mothers will instead guide their teenager to motorcycle safety.
Boys will be boys, and most of them are attracted to motorcycles. Some will lose this interest as they grow older but some will continue to be interested in these 2-wheelers machines. When your teenager shows interest in motorcycles, they will want to learn everything they can about motorcycles and motorcycling. And this is the best time to introduce motorcycle safety guides to them. They will learn from an early age, and be aware of the risk of injury and death in motorcycling.
Concerned mothers can introduce motorcycle safety guides or explain to their teenagers about the importance of motorcycle riding equipment and that it is for their safety. One of the top most important motorcycle riding equipment is the motorcycle safety helmet. Researchers have found that compulsory helmet laws is the most effective way to reduce the numbers of death, and the permanent brain injuries that resulted from motorcycle crashes.
