My little boy learned how to balance on his kick bike when he was just 2 years old. Gave him everything he needs in order to learn. Eventually his bike became an extension of him that whenever we would go anywhere, he would be riding it. In fact, he never got to ride a stroller.
I may have taught him to ride on his own, but as a father it will always be my responsibility to guide and lead him where to steer until the day he can do so by himself.
