    Here are a couple of videos of my new wood hauler/helper. He just turned 8 and is already starting to use my Fiskers

    I was even younger when I started splitting. Hopefully he will do fine.

    Good times. Good driving. Good splitting.

    You have yourself a Great kid. You should be proud. My son is 11 and my daughter is 1.5 yrs old. Love'em to death.

    My boy Loves to split wood with me and he loves to ride his Bike and ATV. My daughter loves to watch the fire with me. Always tells me "Hot" (while pointing finger at stove). Too cute.

    As many have said, good job teaching the young man to help, and enjoy himself doing it. Great memories for you both.

    He'll get his form down and the strength will come with practice and age.

    Next, he must learn the art of bbq
