BalanceKids scooters are a great way to help your child to begin to learn the art of balance. Yes, they have already mastered the art of doing that on 2 feet but on 2 wheels it's a little bit more tricky! Understanding their centre of gravity and how this can change depending on where they stand on the scooter or when they turn a corner can really help children to develop greater co-ordination and be more confident in their own bodies. Learning to ride a scooter is a lot easier than learning to ride a bike, and as such can be a useful stepping stone in the journey towards taking off those dreaded stabilisers from your child's bicycle. Balancing also burns off calories and can tone up muscles, certainly your child will get more calorie burn riding electric tricycles supplier than sat on your sofa gaming as so many kids do these days. Balance will also help them move on to trickier rides such a the Ripstik which is a cross between a scooter and a skate board.ConfidenceBeing fit and healthy will naturally help your child to build confidence and lead a happy life but learning to ride a scooter can also bring about a great sense of achievement for your child. This is something that they have to do for themselves, and when they actually achieve it and feel the wind in their hair as they surf the park or pavements they will feel very proud of themselves. It did take my son a little while to get the hang of his JD Bug 2 wheeled scooter, but with a bit of gentle encouragement and a little trip out every couple of days he has now mastered it and is even trying little jumps off the edge of the kerb! For a long time my son watched with envy as his school mates glided past him into the playground on their scooters, but now he is joining them and enjoying the thrill. And there are always more goals to achieve, my 6 year old has just plucked up the confidence to use the lower ramps in the local skate park and the look on his face when he did this for the first time was unforgettable. Nothing like seeing you own child feeling deservedly proud of themselves.
