Sorry but in my experience the training wheels will be very far off the ground on a 20 bike. Just keep in mind that they might feel more secure with them on even if they dont touch the ground because they're more likely to stop the bike from fully hitting the ground if they loose balance.
I learned to ride a bike when I was about the same age as your boys. My parents got me a smaller bike (like 14 I think) with training wheels and after I learned with that one I upgraded to a bigger one.
