When he was 2. Its just about having fun as others have said. Use you son's natural personality to motivate him. My son has always been competitive. So, I would just ask him to race. He never refuses a race. Also plan on getting off task frequently. My son would always talk about how tall the tree are. Another suggestion is to have candy ready. Two reasons... Candy give kids a little energy and I use this as a reward system. Three Skittles per My son will work his but off for three skittles. more tip. My son plays a lot of tony hawk shred. This is the game that has a board you stand on. It has both snowboarding and skateboarding. I wish you the best of luck.
thanks, wish had a video gaming system at home but my son took it with him when he moved out for college. candy might work,will try that. bought him his snow gears yesterday and just waiting for opening day on the 23rd which would be his birthday.
