He wants to be cool. You can teach him that cool is completely dependent on other people's assessment. He could learn to value himself using his own criteria and who cares what the other's think. One way to gain that self respect is to have awesome BMX skills. Let him develop those skills. He could have a brake on his BMX and never use it. But his skills can give him the internal and external validation every teenager craves.

all they have to do is survive until the two halves of the brain merge - usually around 20 for males, sometimes as late as 40. Or not.
