HELP! 2 year old won't go near a Wheeler or Trike!
I've been away from Cafe mom for 2 years now, but I need help/advice. My now 2 1/2 year old son refuses and is terrified of even attempting to use a Wheller or even a Trike. My son screams and cries and throws a fit if I even attempt to sit him on his wheller or his trike. It's sooo Frustrating!
He started walking at almost 19/20 months.. But now he walks very well and even run pretty well. He hasen't started jumping though. My son was diagnosed with mild dysplasia. He is a bit shorter than other kids his age, but finally about a month ago. We noticed he was finally the right height to try and use a Trike and or wheller. But Every time my husband & I try to sit him on his trike to teach him to pedal or push the wheller forward, he screams and cries and tries gets off the trike or wheeler. He won't even try to push forward to move it, or even sit long enough on his trike for us to attempt and teach him to pedal.He screams says no! and arches his back starts a fit until we let him get off.
I just need help and advice! I know my son has a little disadvantange with his height, but he is super smart and social, yet he can't/refuses to even try to use theses toys! I honestly don't get it! I just want him to play with them. I know he would have fun if he would at least try to use them.
I want to know if anyone here has had a similar problem or if you have any advice on what to do.
