This is shocking to me! I understand not having a lot of time to teach everything you want to, or spend as much time with your kids as you wish, but how do you find people that will teach your child how to ride a bike? Is it going to be in the yellow pages.."Professional bike rider trainer"?! "Professional toothfairy"...this is crazy, we must make time for the important things in life, and our children should def be the top priority after our God!!
