teaching your children to ride a bike... Edit...
What suggestion do people have to help your child learn to ride a bike. My oldest is finally willing to learn to ride a bike. She is 10..yes I know she should have learned way before now but she has flat out refused. This year she is willing to learn. She has been trying and I got her a bigger bike that she picked out herself. I showed her what I did when I learned to ride a bike and gave her suggestion on what she can try. I find she leans to the left too much which she ends up falling to that side but she can touch the ground so she doesnt fall. She does a good job trying but get really frustrated really easy and cries and stops trying and sits on the porch. I have explained to her it is different for everyone and some people learn a lot more easy then others and we all learn in our own time. I have gotten her to ride while I hold on to her and let go for a second but as soon as I let go she goes off to the side. I have told her to push her self around and try to get her to get control and her balance before she tries. Tonight she did good and she made it to the end of the driveway and she stopped herself and she started to cry and I asked her what is wrong and she said I almost went in the road I told her she is ok and stopped herself and didnt end up in the road. It was at the time where there is no one driving down our road. She cried for over an hour. What has anyone else done to help their children learn to ride their bike?
My oldest now knows how to ride her bike and she loves it..she is all excited she can ride her bike. She kept riding up and down the road. She didn't want to stop riding her bike and even asked her little sister if she wanted to race up the road...=)
