My son just learned how to climb stairs the other day. It took him about 5 minutes and he figured it out. We just moved into a home that has stairs, and before now he has never even seen stairs yet to try out. He refuses to put his knees down on the steps when he climbs up. He also uses his head as an anchor for the top step. Any ideas on how to teach him how to go back down the stairs? He refuses to sit on his butt and slide down and wants to "walk" down like Mama and Dada do...but our stairs are very long and steep. He has no fear!
