  1. Some really useful tips there, my son is learning to ride a bike so it's a learning curve for us too.

  2. I think it's sad that so many children are driven everywhere and people are in such a rush that they forget the basics like 'how to cross the road'. Risks exist and children need to be taught how to do things safely - not just expected to be able to do it when they get to 14 or 16!

  3. This all looks like very sensible advice, Grace. It's a worry being a mother isn't it? You wait til Theo is asking to cycle to Secondary School like my eldest! Just confirms how important it is to get this stuff right now :)

  4. I really need to take note of these - the roads are very busy round by us, and I'm sure in a year or so Austin will be raring to be given a bit more freedom. Like you, the thought of that terrifies me!

  5. Some great tips here...I think that we do need to be a little more willing to teach our kids to do things that "might" be dangerous. It is a question of working out each individual child's ability to understand the safety issues, and at what age, and teaching them about these things. These courses sound like a step in the right direction.

  8. We walk 4/5 days & when we reach the roads, Charlie knows that he has to stop & hold hands with me, he's also been doing road safety at school so does know to stop, look & listen but he's so easily distracted!

  9. What some great advice. I remember a boy at school having a bike accident - he brought his smashed helmet into show us all - I never complained about wearing a helmet again after that. x

  10. Great advice, awareness is so important and as we walk to school every morning I am drumming it into my boys - now that the weather is better the scooters have come back out and they are so fast! #BlogClub

  11. Road safety is very important, and I make sure to tell my boys to be careful, even my 14 year old.
