What ever you do, make sure you don't spoil your son by pulling him full speed around the ring from behind... they get spoiled like mine did and I had a tough time convincing him to skate on his own.... My second advice would be to get him the ice walker so he could hold on to it and practice his stride.... Thirdly, make sure his skates are sharp (believe me it's tough to find a place that would sharpen such small skates...) Lastly, give him incentive... meaning him skating toward someone either his mother or a friend...
Good luck but I'm always happy to see people teaching there kids to skate at a young age...
