Default Inline skating with chariot, should I push or pull?

I just got this new pair of inline skates and man they're fast. I also
have a 2..5 year old I have to take with me on weekdays. Question is,
should I pull him along in the chariot or push it like I'm running?

Thoughts?

Just make sure you can stop completely, immediately, whenever you have
to. I think those things are made for walking or jogging, which is a
lot different than skating. JMHO, of course, good luck.

My thoughts too. Supposing you fit a really capable hand brake, better to
push. A trailing buggy wouldstop fine itself, but would skid trying to slow
YOU.

Pushing the chariot would work unless you fell. There is no good hand
activated brake on chariot. It is a push bar in rear transaxel.
Using the hiking or xc attachment will put chariot behind you but you
are a combined unit so braking is controlled by you.
I am recovering from a fractured tibia, this Saturday was the first time
I have pushed a chariot or walked in public without crutches since
before my crash in SG training on March 3.
The chariot is a great stroller, child transport device. Really turns
heads in Central Park, so easy to push and maneuver.
