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.

Oh boy, my father would’ve been in trouble time and time again.

Then again, that’s a huge stretch to call it child endangerment so...

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.

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 Methy...how freaking judgemental for someone "minding" their words.
