I am really looking forward to riding some doubles with him this year too. My daughter who is 7 will be the next one up. She isn't quite as brave but after seeing her little brother, she is determined to do it too.
Slow is certainly key. The other reason slow is good, when they take a fall it will be soft even if they face plant. If you go to fast and they take a hard fall, the will not want to try it again any time soon.
