As parents we usually spare no expense on our children, we will sacrifice all types of things personally so our children don’t do without. Let’s face it we tend to spoil our children if it’s within our means.
Before you go ahead and buy the latest video game or action figure think serious about getting your son or daughter a scooter! You might be thinking a scooter? Why does every toddler need a kick scooter?
Scooters are an integral part of a young child’s development, coordination and motor skills are sharpened by scooter riding. Depth perception and balance are exercised greatly through scooter riding. Many parents are well aware of these benefits and have jumped on board the band wagon.

Today’s on walking trails and parks two; three and even four wheeled scooters are common place. A major advantage of the scooter platform verses others is that they are affordable and safer than a bicycle. While a bike with training wheels will develop the same set of motor skills many children have a hard time maneuvering due the bikes size.
In contrast a scooter is light weight, easier to maneuver and requires a lot commitment allowing a child to simply step off the scooter if they ever feel uncomfortable. Whether you decide on a scooter or not always remember to encourage your child to be active. In today’s society so many parents push their children towards digital entertainment, while it’s easy and convenient kids need to get out and exercise.
Parents this is also an opportunity for you to get out with your kids and get some fresh air. Scooter riding isn’t only for kids many scooter manufacturers have a multitude of models for the entire family. This upcoming weekend instead of buying an action figure, Barbie, video game or sitting the kids in front of an iPad or TV, invest in their motor skills and health, get them a scooter!
