Same thing happened here. Since our older boy was already playing hockey, we were anxious for our younger one to get started, too. Tried getting him going a couple times, then realized he just wasn't ready. The following year we could barely get him off the ice without a fight, and now he's one of the strongest skaters in the area. In a nutshell - let your child decide when he/she is ready, even if it means quitting for a while.

(And no double blades!)
