ASK THE SKATING PRO
Q. What sort of skates should I get for my three year old daughter who has yet to go skating but seems to have a great deal of interest in it?
A. I would rent skates until she shows sustained interest such as a 6 or 8 week class. After she finishes the class, if she is still interested, new skates could be a reward for her committment to finishing the class. Too many parents buy expensive skates before the child even knows if they really enjoy skating.
