One way to encourage kids to be responsible is to give them their own lock.
This summer I plan to let the girls start riding their bikes by themselves around the neighborhood. Nothing too far, but enough that they'll feel independent and will have to be responsible for their things. That includes locking up their bikes!
WordLock bike lock uses letters and words instead of numbers
WordLock recently sent me two 5 Foot Cable Bike Locks for the girls that we can test out this summer. The cables are nice and long and the lock combination will be a word that is easy for them to remember. Next we need to have the discussion that you
a) never share your lock combination (or online passwords) with your friends
b) never use your name as part of your password (or lock combo)
The bike locks attach right to the bike frame and slide in and out of the holder easily. Perfect for smaller hands.
