    Very carefully telling your child you are there if he starts to fall, instill confidence in him, use training wheels, jeepers this is what I did with my daughter, my Dad taught me how, I had to fall a few times and after that I got the hang of it!! I miss my bicycle.  Take care

    Training wheels attached to a bike your child's size.  Plenty of practice and eventually, take the training wheels off (after rules of the road, and braking, is understood).   If you have older neiborhood kids they can assist with role modeling, practice biking, and confidence building.  Good luck. 

    Oh--and ALWAYS have him/her wear a helmet.

    We used training wheels and pretty soon they are zipping all over the place and completely comfortable on the bike. Then after a few weeks or months (don't recall) we took the training wheels off and they could ride like champs.

    Riding bicycle is basically balancing.

    When you want to teach your child riding bicycle, ask your child to focus straight ahead instead looking down on the road or paddle.

    It works with my kids.

    We are using training wheels for the moment, and the kids are doing great qith their brand new bikes, sure that once we take them off there are bound to be balance issues and some falls, but practice makes perfect and I think kids pick up these things naturally... So, I would say it's just a matter of encouragement, being there and having a first aid kit around just in case. A helmet is also a good idea...

    We used training wheels, with a little balancing help at first and when I took them off, my son was riding and to my knowledge only fell once.
