dont worry…a few free ice creams and its a done deal…lolJune 29, 2007 at 2:20 am #47234CrazyCraigMember
My son is 6 and yes, I did buy him a complete team uniform even though he doesn’t race. Hindsight 20/20, I should have said if you want the uniform, you have to earn it, but then again, the team is a family effort, and it makes him feel good being a part of it.
Still, he gets up and practices at every race he goes to with me. He just needs to learn how to ride standing up. He is finally doing it at home on the street, and even has learned to ride off low curbs without falling. But, I have never told him he has to race. He is a little scared because he has seen daddy fall and he has, too.
That said, this year he played TBall, and I was his manager. He had a lot of fun. My wife has been dancing since she was three, so she put him in dance school and he liked that too. I think we all agree that you need to let your kids try different things, and if it keeps them off the couch, its a good thing.June 29, 2007 at 3:19 am #47237loudogg666Member
i think parents should expose their kids to many different activities when they are younger and the kid can stick to whatever activity he or she likes the best. i wish my parents did that, oh well.June 29, 2007 at 12:03 pm #47238bmxmom156Member

ok, my lil guy cooper (4) just learned to ride w/o trainer wheels this week.
we dropped the seat, took off the pedals and let him scoot around untill he was comfy. we asked if he wanted to try the pedals and he said yeah…..
he got it right away.
a few more times with the pedals off, then back on, then off…. now he’s got em on and cruisin all around
this seems to be the best/easiest way for themJuly 8, 2007 at 1:33 pm #47543CWCCRIDERMember
