Teaching your child to ride a bike is so passé. You may think it’s your job to teach balancing, pedaling, and breaking, but busy parents now have options.
Canadian writer Rebecca Eckler recently confessed to hiring a professional bike-riding counselor to school her daughter in the ways of training wheels and banana seats. Oh, the horror, right? What’s next — a professional Tooth Fairy and an after-school nurse to kiss boo-boos?
I just can't decide how I feel about this. One one hand, I know that my kiddos often learn things quicker and without expressing as much frustration, when someone other than my husband or myself teaches them. However, this just seems like... lazy parenting? What do you think?
