Ride a bike they said. It’s easy they said.
That is what my preteen keeps saying to herself. She’s a little late, but we got her a different bike this year. She has been procrastinating riding it. I made her get on it today. She’s not happy.
I started out helping her. I was holding one of the handle bars and the back of the bike seat. I wasn’t helping. I told her to practice gliding with her legs out to the sides. She did that for a while and got to learn how to balance some. I tried holding onto her again, and when I let go she rode fore about 2-3 seconds. I told her to try to start off on her own now. She was not happy.
She is still not riding on her own. I told her she was going to try again tomorrow. I can’t help but wonder if there is some other way I can help her get on and go. I guess to be continued. Wish us luck!
