Franklin learns that everyone has to struggle with their particular challenges, just as he has to struggle to cycle without training wheels.
It's time for Franklin to ride his two-wheeler without training wheels. He observes his friends and mistakenly thinks they find it easy, but a closer look helps him grasp that others find various things difficult too. Imagine a porcupine rollerblading, and you get the idea. Porcupine suggests Franklin use rollerblading pads, put pillows beside the walkway for crash landings, and to keep on trying!
