If you think he's getting discouraged, get him laughing and giggling on the ice. Don't worry about balance, skill, etc. If you can get him to laugh, then it's alot easier to avoid getting discouraged.

My kid got discouraged a couple sessions from harmless falls, then it got difficult just to try and go skating, even though we were trying to keep it fun. Ended up just pulling him on a sled most of the time.

I figured out that mine likes to bump me with the walker, see me take a tumble, then he will make himself tumble too. He's giggling himself silly on the ice at that point.
