I had a proud moment over the weekend, my son Beau ditched the training wheels on his bike. Not bad for a 4 and 1/2 year old! This clip comes after 20 min or so of him failing to do it, almost giving up, me encouraging him, then presto, he just takes off! I'll never forget it.
And NO I did not have a helmet on him thank you very much It was my decision as a parent, not saying that is THE way to do it, just how I chose to do it. He'll be just fine.
