So, that being said - we backed off. However I had a sneaking suspicion that Adam's scooter would help teach him balance and a few weekends back while we were enjoying a ton of outdoor time due to unseasonably warm weather we simply suggested to Adam that he might be able to ride his bike now since he was so good at balancing on his scooter. He seemed interested and willing to try (that's the key) and so we got his bike out, he put on his helmet, and all of a sudden while we weren't even looking Adam starts cheering "I'm doing it!!" And sure enough - without even an ounce of help from us Adam was riding his bike.
A fun milestone that Adam hit when he was ready and now we can't get him off of it! He even rode his bike nearly 3 miles yesterday.
We may not have had to teach Adam how to ride a bike - but he certainly taught us something!
Go Adam go!
