Day 80 (Day 196) Fear

Fear


MJ set aside his fear, and tried his bike without the training wheels!  We had actually tried this last summer, but he resisted, and wouldn't get on his bike at all.  So we gave in and put the training wheels back on.  This spring though, we told hm the training wheels are not going back on.  He has great balance so we know he can do this!  He did really well this time, but gave up after a few tumbles.  The weather is going to be nasty again during the upcoming days, so we won't be able to practice again until maybe next week.

  1. This photo says success to me just leave it there, time will bring the confidence, then your fear can start as he goes wider and wider afield with his new found independence, Just as it should be and all will come out well in the end!

  4. His fear--and then there's the fear that parents have as their children set off to conquer the world without them.
