decided to learn to ride a 2 wheeler. She'd been riding around on a bike with
but wanted to move on to two wheels. Both dad and mom tried helping her but it
just wasn't working.
She'd go for a while if one of us was holding her, but when we let go, she'd
either panic or just stop.
Then, one day, we went for a walk to the Dairy Queen a few blocks away. She'd somehow decided that 'today was the day' and kept telling us to stay back. She tried and tried and eventually she got herself going. It took a while, she fell a few times, but she kept at it until she got it right.
It was one of the proudest moments for us as parents - she had 'faced her fear' and overcome it.
