Daisy and her mum
Hello and welcome to the Parent - Kid interview for Tic Tac Skate School
Hi what is your name and whose parent are you?
I am Adelise, Daisy Bos mum and Tom's partner (so a little biased 😍🤘☠)
How long has your child been skating?
About 8 months
What do you think about them skateboarding? Are you not worried they might hurt themselves?
I love it, its gets her outside, moving around and best of all making new friends. Shes taken a couple of falls but gets right back up
What got your child into skateboarding? Was it your influence or... my partner runs tic tac and is a skateboarder who shared his passion with her, shes now hooked 😘😘😘
Do you think it’s a positive pastime? Even with all the stigma surrounding skateboarding? Absolutely it's a great way to socialize, the skateboard scene is inclusive and her confidence is through the roof, she loves skating with her local girl crew but equally loves skating with the boys and Tom of course
What do you think of Tom the Tic Tac Skate Coach? And how has his presence helped your child regarding skateboarding?
Hes patient, enthusiastic, gently encouraging and inspiring, the kids love him
Can you imagine not being around skateboarding you or your child now?
No, we are well and truly hooked
What do you think you could contribute to the Tic Tac skate school?
Happy to help in any way, socially bringing the skate school kids and adults together
What valuable life skills do you think your child has learnt from skateboarding?
Etiquette, confidence, determination and patience but most of all fun, it should be fun! She wants to spend every spare second at the skatepark
And finally, would you recommend skateboarding to anyone who has never tried it?
100% it's fun, great to meet people and inclusive
