A child on a bicycleThe hardest part of raising a child is teaching them to ride bicycles. A shaky child on a bicycle for the first time needs both support and freedom. The realization that this is what the child will always need can hit hard.

-- Sloan Wilson (1920-2003), American author, The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit (1976)
