Not right or wrong, but I disagree. I think we all progress faster when we don't have to relearn things. My son started on a freewheel and caliper brake bike just before he was 2 years old. We were able to work on other skills, rather than relearning to brake. It also depends on a kid's aspirations on the bike.
