I'm trying to teach my five year old to ride a bike without pulling my hair out. How old were you or your kids when they learned?
Yep patience and encouragement is a great motivator even when I might get frustrated, I try my best to not let it show and keep telling them they're doing a good job.So we're on track then. Cool. It's very trying. That is I'm trying not to throw her bike in the woods. My old man says I jumped on my bike and took off like it was nothing. I just fucked at everything else in life! Nice guy eh?
Big ole' X2 on that.The problem with this whole thread is you are assuming I can remember that long ago.
PATIENCE!? I'll tell ya patience, Hanna Montna's on the big screen right now! How's that for patience!?? LOL!Yep patience and encouragement is a great motivator even when I might get frustrated, I try my best to not let it show and keep telling them they're doing a good job.
Just last summer my son was terrified for some reason of his bike. Now he's trying to do tricks like ride without hands, trying to pop wheelies, he learned how to work the hand brake for the back wheel to make it skid and to stand up and ride.
That may sound typical but watching your kid learn and grow amazes me.
