Tip 102 – Bigger Skates

School functions, birthday parties, outings in the park – your kid has probably been invited to skate on multiple occasions.  Hopefully, he already knows how to skate.  If he doesn’t, here are the basics: Tighten the wheels on the skates so they barely turn, put two pairs of socks on your child, put the skates on tightly, and let your child walk around on the carpet.  Stay away from coffee tables or any other hard objects.  Practice should be in an open area.  After your child is completely comfortable walking with skates on, progress to wooden floors or the sidewalk while the wheels are still tight.  Slowly loosen the wheels one at a time until your child naturally progresses to skating.  Note that these skates are unisex and adjustable.  Skates should be part of the hand-me-down system.  Don’t forget the helmet, elbow pads, and knee pads.
