Use Your Brain To Get Out Of This

| Related | February 23, 2016

(My four-year-old daughter loves hockey, so I have signed her up for lessons. She has been doing well so far but hates the protective equipment, especially her helmet.)

Me: “Put your helmet on.”

Daughter: “No!”

Me: “You have to wear it if you want to play hockey.”

Daughter: “Why?”

Me: “Because it’s the rule.”

Daughter: “Why?”

Me: “Because it’s safer.”

Daughter: “Why?”

Me: *getting fed up with this* “It protects your brain.”

Daughter: “Why?”

Me: *pissed off* “Your brain isn’t connected to your skull; it’s attached to your spine. It’s like your brain is a balloon and your spine is the string. To make sure your brain doesn’t touch a bone, your skull is full of water and your brain is floating in it. If you hit your head really hard it will make a big wave in your brain water and your brain will crash into the wall of your skull. You need to wear your helmet so your head won’t get hit as hard and your brain won’t get hurt.”

Daughter: “Okay.” *puts her helmet on without a fuss*
