While out riding bikes as a family Arrow had a high speed encounter with the sidewalk.
I guess this goes to show arm gaurds, as well as helments are good for kids when riding a bicycle. However, to be honest we wore none of that stuff when I was growing up and I think you can over do things. I do feel its parental choice.
Anyway, he is just fine and to patch up the extreme booboos I used hand sanitizer as antiseptic and two pads (liners) I had in my purse and made makeshift bandaids. They work perfect for temporary use till you get home if you find youself without any other supplies.
