Electric scooter for kids

First and foremost I want to explain myself. I just purchased an electric scooter for my kids, found an excellent kids scooter for a decent price. Finally gave in after about a year and a half.

Compromise electric scooter vs hoverboard 

There were compromises being made however, so I don't feel like a total loser. 

Let me explain.

For over a year and a half, my kids have been up my bottom about getting one of these new hoverboards, but I've stayed consistent with it and I didn't budge an inch. I felt a bit sad about their friends having these things and being the "bad dad" to most of the kids I can take, but seeing them unhappy and not letting go of the idea got me thinking. 

What if I could find something else to keep them occupied and so that they could join their friends and ride around whenever they like to. 

So I asked them about what type of ride on toys there were and they came up with a few, mostly go kart, ATV and crazy stuff like that. 

Finding an electric scooter for kids

So I started searching the web of course with the help of my old pal google. Finally I came across bestelectricscooter.review which had some good points on why electric scooters would be perfect for kids. A few minutes after reading through their list of benefits I was on my way to purchasing the first one for my boy, only to uncover that there are like a gazillion scooters to choose from. 

Seriously who makes so many scooters for kids? I mean what we really need is one reliable with a few different speed differences and colors. That would make the choice so much easier, but as always we need to complicate things with different twist-throttle, push-throttle, gas pedal? 

Finally settle for one with a moderate speed of 10 mph which I think is more than enough for my 11-year-old boy. The little lady of the house got a smaller one in pink, of course, her favorite color. That one did about 5 mph which I think is great and it had a seat, wider standing pad and a push-start which means that she needs to push off before the throttle has any effect.

Do they expect that parents know what all this stuff mean for as simple as a scooter?

I mean if I wouldn't magically have come to this guide I would never have known that there were all these safety precautionary functions which some scooters lacked. Thank god people are so into sharing this stuff, and that google is so good at finding the things we need. 

Leaving you with a question, what would the world look like if google just vanished into thin air and we were back in the early 90's? 

I know my kids wouldn't have had scooters that are for sure!

Another great thing with these kids Youtube videos

Another great thing with Jake and the Neverland pirates is that there is so many good hidden messages for the kids learn and evolve while they’re watching these types of youtube video. Ryan could probably spend hour after hour in front of youtube watching his favorite episode of jake and the his pirates over and over again if I’d let him. Fortunately I do not let him watch that much tv/youtube every day. I remember when I had a computer while I was young. My parents told me I couldn’t sit at the computer for too long and I had like a schedule for how much I could sit each day. But they had no problem with me sitting in front of the TV or going to see a movie or playing video games. That was so much more normal. Even though computers had more educational purpose and the well the TV commercials can brainwash any kid to say the least. That is my thoughts on the whole computer/youtube/TV point of view when it comes to kids. IT is educational and I think our kids learn so much thanks to these new technologies. Even though there are bad guys like captain hook in jake and the Neverland pirates they have made him much nicer in the cartoon series compared to what I used to watch as a kid. We are going in the right direction if you ask me!

Jake and the neverland pirates is one of my kids favorite cartoon characters, these little pirates which airs on disney junior each day seems to be the only thing on that channel for kids Ryans age (7). That Special agent Oso is more appropriate for smaller kids I think and he really like how they battle against captain hook. For example he watched this jake and the Neverland pirates episode yesterday on youtube, someone has recorded themselves playing a jake and the Neverland pirates game and the uploaded it to youtube for kids to watch. It makes me happy knowing there are kind souls out there who do such a thing so that kids can enjoy these games even though they aren’t old enough to understand/play them themselves.

Something I love thinking about and the best book for motivational purposes

So i've read the 4 hour work week by Timothy Ferris and I have to say it's one of the most motivational pieces I've ever read. I say read but i did not do this I listened to it on Youtube. Some guy with a very nice voice told me about all this stuff. What a great book and the reader was very into the whole cituation making it even more impressive.

All in all here is a quote I do try to keep in mind:


“For all of the most important things, the timing always sucks. Waiting for a good time to quit your job? The stars will never align and the traffic lights of life will never all be green at the same time. The universe doesn't conspire against you, but it doesn't go out of its way to line up the pins either. Conditions are never perfect. "Someday" is a disease that will take your dreams to the grave with you. Pro and con lists are just as bad. If it's important to you and you want to do it "eventually," just do it and correct course along the way.” ― Timothy Ferriss, The 4-Hour Workweek

You can find the book on sites like amazon or any other prefered bookstore you might like to get your books from!
