Riding bikes, scooters and skates are a favourite outdoor activity for most children.
As an au pair, you can also have a great time outdoors riding on wheels! Just be sure to be smart and safe. Road accidents are a leading cause of death and injury for children around the world. If you are supervising a child on a bike, skateboard, scooter or rollerblades, it is essential that they wear a helmet. In fact, it’s the law in many countries that helmets be worn when riding a bike! Only ride bikes, skateboards and scooters in designated, safe places, not on busy roads with cars. A bike path is best. Don’t expect children to know the rules of driving on the road. Children under the age of 12 should not be left to ride on the road without supervision.
