843 A.2d 1120 (2004)
After discovery, the father moved for summary judgment. The trial court granted that motion.
- It concluded that the guardian had not overcome the rebuttable presumption that the child was incapable of negligence.
- The trial court also concluded that the doctrine of parental immunity barred the guardian's claims against the parents because there was no willful or wanton misconduct attributable to either of them.
- As such, unlike driving a motor vehicle or crossing a street, the conduct fell within the purview of parental philosophy involving a child's upbringing, entitling the parents to immunity as a matter of law.
- The parents determined that their five- and-a-half-year-old child could ride a bike within the confines of a neighborhood block party, in the presence of the father himself, and in the presence of other parents presumably supervising their own children.
The judgment was affirmed.
