every child is different. it can be scary for them to walk without holding onto something. you could try putting 2 kitchen chairs close together and putting a little snack on one, like a cheerio or something. stand him up next to the other chair. make sure the first time that the chairs are close enough that he doesn't have to let go of one to get to the other one. when he gets the treat move the chair and put another treat down. play this game and in no time he'll be walking.

Every child is different, my daughter is 15 months and shes walking but my niece was 18 months when she started. Give it time when he's ready he'll walk. does he walk with a walker or walk around coffee tables etc?

Do you mean 14months? All my nephews included the most recent all didnt walk for ages. We just encourage everyday and then one day they just started walking on their own. boys seem to be about lazy but they get there. Make his muscels stronger encourage thats always the way I think clap when they do a few steps they love that

Hold his hands and walk wit him he should walk he will do it on his own time just be patient and help him. Also put him on his feet where he has nothin to hold or grab on to and let go of him but still be there to catch him and will eventually do it.

Do you mean 14 month old? Do you ever hold him up with his hands and walk with him? Their are also toys that are made for them to walk behind.
