They make youth sized helmets, you can buy them from Jegs. There is risk with juniors as there is also risk with Pee Wee Football. But I do think sometimes parents get anxious to involve their kids in their hobbies and may rush things. When they announced the age drop to 5 years old I was completely against that. I think age 8 is already pushing it but I know some people get their kids started on dirt bikes and karts early and that probably had some influence for NHRA on this.

I think a required full two day training course/workshop made mandatory for kids and parents to license in a junior would be ideal. I don't think enough is done to ready them at this point.
