Training Wheels Here We Come

Filed under: children,parenting — by mommygoingcrazy @ 4:32 pm

This morning I thought this is the day; the day First Born will finally ride his bike.  We spent twenty minutes on it.  Only twice was he balanced enough that I could let go but he sensed it and automatically stopped pedaling so he fell.  He just didn’t grasp the concept that he has to pedal in order for the bike to stay upright. It was loosing battle so since I was frustrated, he was frustrated so we stopped.  He went happily off to play on the playground. 

I made a huge mistake by taking the training wheels off First Born's bike.  I thought he is 6 now, he should learn to ride his bike. The problem is he never really got the hang of riding the bike with the training wheels.  So today's disastrous attempt to teach him how to ride his bike made me re-evaluate and I am going to put him back on training wheels. This time I will give him lots and lots of practice.  Maybe in the fall The Husband can teach him to ride without the training wheels because I'm not really cut out to teach him how to ride his bike, no patience.  Too bad there isn't a service out there to teach your kids to ride. 🙂
