Hi Leeann,
It is a concern. Our sons rode snowmobiles very early as well, but in a small town. They were always with their father or in a group with an adult (I think). They drove seadoos and boats. They also raced down hills on GT racers and skateboarded on half pipes (?) those plywood curved jumps that they helped construct with saws and hammers. They later built high mounds of snow off roofs of garages to practice snowboarding. As parents we have to do the best we can, but it is hard.
We want them to learn to be responsible but be safe as well. Learn independence and be creative but be safe.
Good luck. Encourage but strap on his helmet and knee pads, and smile while you cross your fingers and toes.
Yours truly,
Annette Bower

Yes we are having issues with our son and his "sled" as he learns to operate ....only problem is he is 21 and does not go 5 mph in circles....he does still yell Whoo hoo....hard to hear it over the high pitched noise his 800 cc sled makes.....This is his first sled so our concern is far more than your 6 year old!
6 year olds listen and learn way sooner than 21 year olds.

I will let you know how it turns out!!
