Parents should try there best to make sure there kids wear helmets at all times while cycling.

I don't think anyone would disagree with that...

Speaking as a parent, though, I give that direction and ensure that the kids are wearing theirs, but it's with the knowledge that a helmet isn't going to do much to protect if someone drags my child under his or her vehicle.

I teach them all the Elmer the Safety Elephant rules for crossing the street, too, but those aren't going to save them from drivers who are determined to break the law in the most dangerous ways possible.
