It’s been a parenting stress of mine from the beginning. Which activities will they love? Which one should we join? I worried all the time about it.
Parents wanting their kids to make it to the pros should listen to this advice from Steve Nash. Stop pushing your kids and let them play. Elite athletes often echo the same refrain; private coaches dont get you to the top, free play and creativity does.
The best way to teach your kids ride a bike is to let someone else teach them. That’s how it worked for us. That slow motion moment of bike freedom was had by an instructor at Pedalheads. I missed that moment, but it’s okay. Because now they ride.
