Its not like a car where they can grab the wheel, etc. If you take it easy and at her comfort level, next thing you know, she'll be wanting to ride her own. I do like having my girl on her own ride now (although I still have to 2up with her son), but its definitely a fun family outing when the 3 of us go out. Something bonding about being on a bike.
Way cool!
