Yesterday I saw a man skateboarding with a little girl standing in front of the skateboard. Neither one were wearing helmets. It’s totally violates Oregon law. Is it also a child endangerment?

Yes. It is child endangerment, no question.

I can’t say without more info.
There are scenarios where I could see that being totally fine and probably a lot of fun for the kid.
There are also plenty of scenarios that would make my skin crawl.

I defaulted to “not child endangerment” because that’s a pretty serious charge and I don’t throw it around lightly.

No, child endangerment is physical, emotional or psychological abuse. This was careless.

I think we bubble wrap kids too much anymore.

Not in Florida. Helmets are optional here.

Helmet for a skateboard? Overkill.

No. Rather, I find helmet laws to be serious government overreach. Seatbelt laws too.

Is it slightly irresponsible? Yes.

Slightly? Have you ever heard of traumatic brain trama. If he would’ve fallen on top of her I would’ve been horrible.

Sure I have, are you suggesting that by wearing a helmet it will certainly prevent one from happening?

Again - endangerment, no - irresponsible, yes.

I mind my language so I was careful when I called the man. He did look a little methy

This would seriously piss me off if it were me. What right do you have meddling in my affairs? I don’t want busy bodies telling me how to raise my kid and doubt others do either. If he was kind to you in response, you were very fortunate, IMO.

I did not say anything. I will certainly would never call someone a name in front of their child

I agree Krystina not to mention the guy looked a little freaking judgemental for someone "minding" their words.
