How do you deal with people forcing their opinions on you? I know I am pretty opinionated. I have been known to make my viewpoint heard but I have not gone as far as forced it on you. At least I don't think I have.
We live in a day and age where the government and liberal minded thinking has stepped in to our personal lives and has tried its best to dictate how you and I live. Personally, you can have your opinion about what is "safe" or not but don't force me to think like you and live in your paranoid world. Oooo...I am starting to get my dander up.....breathe....ok. So, we have met our neighbors just a few doors done and their boys and mine are getting to know each other and like hanging out. The other day both boys came home with bike helmets. They were told that they "needed" them. To be honest I don't know what the law is here on bike helmets. I have purposely not looked it up. From what I understand it is a suggestion not a law, but our neighbors feel that we are putting our children in danger and are doing their best to protect my kids. Bryce made a statement as he was walking out the door that I am pretty sure came straight from their house, "Kids with helmets don't end up in hospitals." I think I can prove that statement wrong. My communication to Bryce was if you like the helmet and want to wear it, then do. I, however, am not forcing it on my children. I have a feeling we won't be best of friends with our neighbors, but will be able to be social to one another.
