I have a 2 1/2 year old son who is an unbelievalbe skater:

I am struggling with making sure he reaches his potential without making it seem like work at 2 years old. In the same respect, if I saw video like this of me at age two and found out my parents never pushed me a little I would be pissed. I would have loved to have started this early. This is not a talent I can let slip away. He clearly has a gift and I need to encourage it until he's old enough to decide if he wants to start pushing himself or not. God I hope he does.

What if I don't push a little and in 3 or 4 years when he wants to play he missed that time to become great? Can you believe at 5 or 6 he could be great? 3 or 4 years is a long tome to practice before your 6 years old. Wow!
