Teaching your child how to cycle can be something very tedious and tiring. It is an important skill for a child to master so you would want your child to learn it no matter the process. The biggest challenge would be having your child run up to you and cry due to the fear of falling. Patience runs low because it gets frustrating when your child is not able to do it even after repeating the instructions to them. Different methods are used just to get your child interested and being able to cycle at the end of the day.
The best way to get your child wanting to learn is making the “class” a fun environment. Throw in some simple games to help them in their fundamentals of cycling. Take it one step at a time. When children have fun during the process, they would want to keep the class going. This will help a lot when it comes to their fear of falling. Once children have fun, they would forget entirely about their fear.
Before you start to teach your child how to ride a bicycle is, of course, to get him/her a suitable bicycle. It is important that they are equipped with a proper bicycle so your child would not be uncomfortable during the process of the learning.

Safety gears are important especially when your child has started cycling long distance or at Park Connectors in Singapore. However, during the class, avoid having your child to put on safety gears such as elbow pads and/or kneepads. It is proved that such safety gears can be restrictive during the class. As the class will be conducted outdoors, your child will get really sweaty (and so will you). It will be uncomfortable on your child’s arms due to the sweat that is covered on the elbow pads. Your child will be easily distracted and might complain to you about the itch on their arms thus not being able to go on with the activity.
