Give Kazam Kids' Bike ! - the Way to Learn to Balance

Updated on February 19, 2015

Let me tell you why learning to balance is key for kids and moms before we let our children out on regular bikes.

I followed my daughter on her bike

as she headed down the country road that bordered our land.and saw right-in-front-of-me how a lack of fully trained balance can let a dip in the pavement hurl a child through the air.

One moment she thought she was in control, and the next I was gasping from the seat of my own bike, fearing for her. My young daughter's lack of developed balance skills had put an immediate stop to her ride, and catapulted her over the handlebars to land smack on the road.

Good Fortune smiled down on us that morning

that kept her from fracturing her skull. I witnessed the hurl and the smash and my heart squeezed into tightly packed Heirloom tomato shape, pouring acid into my stomach.

Now that I've discovered the Kazam Balance Bike I'm convinced that this invention came a good 30 years late for us.

But it's just in time for all your little family folks

to teach them through good practice. Remember the days of the training wheels, and how they saved you from developing your own balance skills. My daughter's bike didn't have training wheels. The developer of Kazam understood that training wheels can actually hamper bike riding skills proficiency.

With this innovative bike little kids can practice on hot stylish new models that are sized just right for them. They learn the basics of balance and breaking without unnecessary accessories. That means the kids gain a physiological sense of motion, and the muscle knowledge that teaches them to be in charge of whether they go or not.

Kids learn to determine their speed and direction, once they master the skills to keep themselves upright.

Kazam! Teach the kids ways to keep upright before setting them loose on a regular bike. They'll thank you for it.

My daughter would have loved these pads and they would have cushioned her fall.

Knowing she was helmeted and had pads and gloves I'd have been eager to take her out on our sparsely traveled roadway again.

After testifying for the passage of the motorcycle helmet bill in our state, I celebrated with the passage of each city and county's bicycle helmet bills.

A post passes around social media extolling the virtues of growing up in the 50s and 60s, when kids didn't wear bike helmets. While I agree those were wonderful decades to be a kid, I suspect we just didn't hear about the bike crashes that caused brain injuries and I'm glad for today's laws.

 

Balance before biking - it makes perfect sense to me - how about you?

What importance do you place on training the child's body to balance before setting them free on a regular bike?

      Yes, my own son took a head-first tumble off his bike, when young. Thankfully he survived with a grazed chin! These look very useful. I think my granddaughter could have done with one of these a couple of years ago. She is probably too big for them now but doesn't have the confidence those young children displayed in the video.

      Absolutely and I'm so glad that in Canada, at least, kids must wear helmets. Great page - this will help plenty of parents. Pinning.
