Teaching Your Child To Ride A Balance Bike
Dont be disheartened if your child doesnt show any interest towards the bike initially. Firstly encourage your child to walk beside the bike and become familiar handling the bike. Children will instinctivly throw a leg over the bike when they are ready. Their security is their feet at this point and we need them to feel secure. As they feel more comfortable walking around with the bike between their legs, they will start to trust the bike and start using the saddle. At this point we can start helping them to balance on two wheels. Walk behind the bike supporting them by holding their shoulders. DO NOT support the bike. This will give a false sense of balance much the same as training wheels do. To learn, kids need feedback as to when they are balanced and when they are off balance.
