I didnt learn to skate until I was almost 30 years old though and they say that the younger you learn the better because most kids are pretty fearless and dont worry about falling and getting hurt like adults tend to.
Precisely. Kids are resilient, they expect to fall and don't feel near the embarrassment that adults do. Not to mention the fall is much shorter and less painful. It really does make you feel bad when a 7 year old comes whizzing by you, doing backwards crossovers and hockey stopping with ease. It's frustrating and discouraging but I have to keep reminding myself that everyone was a beginner at some point in time and age shouldn't matter.
