My niece had her 6th birthday party at a local roller rink this past weekend. At first, Anderson wanted nothing to do with roller skates. He screamed and cried and threw a complete fit. (Welcome to the terrible twos!) We decided to put him in his stroller and wheel him around the rink. He seemed to like that. Then we put his skates on while still in the stroller. He seemed to tolerate that too. Finally, we got him out of the stroller and started skating with him. He skated, maybe, one loop with us holding our hands and then he decided to do it all on his own. He was good at it! He would fall but didn't hurt himself or cry. He was even able to get back on his feet all by himself after he fell. He's so big.
