Re: Opinions please abuse or different parenting?
No neglect, but I think if there is a way for you to get some fliers about helmets and car seats to them that would ease your conscience. Put them in an envelope and put them in the mail and no one will ever know it was you! You could even put a not so subtle note in with them!
The part that is cultural is they don't have our north american obsession with safety and our child centred society.
