Should we celebrate about it?

My son started to learn how to bike just recently. But before he only goes to bike with a wheel support on the back of of his bike. And just recently when his playmate starting to bike without a support (two wheels only) he also challenge to learn in 2 wheels only. And when he finally learned it, he is really happy about it, telling everyone that he already know how to bike and make a demo of it, he also telling me that his bike is not for a baby anymore. How can I show that I appreciate what he can do now, he is really proud that he can bike on his own now?

You can show him or tell him about your discussion, and that will show him that you are proud. Be sure to take pictures to remember how it gets easier with practice. In some families they give a new responsibility for each new skill. He will have many accomplishments over the years and will enjoy knowing that you are proud of him.

It must be really fun, your child can ride a bike. My son is 8 years old, but still can not ride a bike. My son did not want to learn to ride a bike. I also do not have the time, to teach my child to ride it. If my child can ride a bike, I would be celebrating.

actually that bike has a training wheel on rear, he is also like your son don't know how to bike at first but seeing his playmate biking without a training wheel makes him challenge to bike alone and he learned it on his own

I remember when I learned to ride that way, it's the only thing my Grandfather ever taught me. I had a blue bike. I don't remember any other adults paying any attention, but knowing my family they must have. What was important to me was i learned it. What I am saying is no matter how you praise your son what he is really going to remember is that he learned it. We give a blue ribbon in the USA when someone wins, maybe you could get him one that says first bike ride and the date. Then he could keep that as a special reminder.

Well you need to take him out and eat somewhere. We should not spoil kids so much. But parents can show them their appreciation by simple things.

I don't know how or what you do, but you might make him a special meal, whatever it is he likes to eat that day. Not necessarily make it a "food reward" but a little special celebration like you might do for any landmark in his life.

You have to give praise to your child. Your child will feel happy, won praise from you. You definitely feel good, your child can learn new things. I also would be very happy, if my child learn new things.
