Diana Kwon recently wrote a Scientific American article titled, "Our Brain Typically Overlooks This Brilliant Problem-Solving Strategy." She opens with an anecdote about how kids learn to ride a bicycle today versus in the past. When I was a kid, my father installed training wheels on my bike, as many other parents did. Today, more and more parents are opting to purchase balance bikes for their children. These two-wheel bicycles have no pedals. Kids learn balance and coordination on these bikes. Many say that these bikes are much more effective than training wheels. Kwon asks the question, "Given the benefits of balance bikes, why did it take so long for them to replace training wheels?"
