    On the note of physio doing it. .. They are quite specific in how they do it. They don't hold their hands so bub uses hands to balance. They brace them around the waist to help. They use incentives like toys on benches etc. One of my physios leans my dd on his legs (her back on his legs she's facing forward) and makes her walk towards me.
    I don't see anything wrong with it.
    It is certainly helping her.
    It's another one of those one size doesn't fit all scenarios.

    I agree. Isn't practice (of any type) how we learn some skills.
    Do you wait for a child to jump in a pool and swim....or give them lessons.
    My current guidance is teaching DD to ride without training wheels. I don't plan to just take them off and stick her on top of a hill, I help her balance then run next to her.
    Each to their own I guess

    Yes practice and observation. If you don't walk babies they still practice you know Just without the parent help.

    It always really interests me what other countries do. And why the practice in other countries is so different. I find this a lot talking to my contacts overseas in relation to my dd medical conditions.

    I think France is very big on getting babies and children as independent and as early as possible which is probably driving this.

    I love Janet Lansbury, so many of her articles really resonate with me and have helped me a lot with finding a way to deal with my kids emotions, conflicts and melt downs.
