Younger Kids Shouldn't Use Skateboards

Skateboards and scooters are popular with children. But the American Academy of Pediatrics offers this caution: Skateboards aren't safe for children younger than 10, and protective gear such as helmets, wrist guards, elbow and knee pads should be worn. You should insist that older kids wear protective gear, as well.
