Default I Need Your Thoughts

We have a very large fenced back yard, a lot of area for the kids to play. We had been wanting a patio over hang for years to be able to buy some nice patio furniture and keep table with chair out there ect just a nice relaxing place for us to go for us. So we just are getting done with this cover and we are no longer wanting to keep the daycare kids bikes under there, would it be bad or wrong to not have bikes for the kids to ride on pavement? There are other push bikes which most of the time the kids take them in the grass anyways but I just want some of my home and space back. Like I said there is a lot of other space and things for them to do. Thanks

Oh heck no, it's not wrong!!! I don't care what they say about it being a business, to me it was always my home first. If there was something I wanted or didn't want for dc, within regulations, then that's what *I* did. They can ride bikes at home.
BTW, I only allowed dcks to bring their own bikes for a very short time. Too much liability IMO. Ya always have enough to worry about safety-wise.

I don't offer bikes because they require helmets and pads, here. Too much drama and maintenance. Parents can do bikes at home.

Enjoy your patio.

Thank you I feel better now about this decision. I got rid of scooter a few years ago for the older kids because I was tired of having to put helmets on the kids and buying one for each kid so I didn't have to adjust each time. The only ride on things I have are where they have to use their feet so no helmets required and they use them in the grass most of the time anyways. Thank you
