    And falling actually develops their sense of space and how gravity works. Kids need to fall over, trip etc so they utilise their reflexes.

    Sounds bizarre but falling over won't hurt him too much. Kids recover quickly.

    This. He needs to work out how his centre of gravity changes.

    He will be fine

    We sent my niece in the UK a pair of soft leather slippers (wooden floors & very cold in winter.) apparently they've been brilliant. We got hers from the Rocks Markets in Sydney, but they do have a website.

    My kids learnt to walk on tiles. Sure they slipped but they got back up and kept going. I'd glance over check they were ok and let them go..

    My ds has learnt to walk on tiles. We still have a few slips here and there but onesies amd socks are worn as it is very cold here. He has some with grip but he is so confident that you wouldn't know the difference.

    My nephew has just started walking. He learnt pretty quickly to fall on his bum and not his face and as a result just hops up and keeps going

    Let him fall some. On carpet, near cushions, etc.

    Kids fall.

    Yes, he will learn. You did, he will.

    We have wooden floor boards and tiles in our house with carpet only in the bedrooms. My boys learnt pretty quickly to land on their bums instead of their face! I agree with others, you have to let them fall and slip so they can learn how to balance themselves. Not nice to watch, but you can give them a cuddle and help them up and encourage them to try again. It doesn't take them long!

    As for not slipping...try some soft soled shoes. We had a couple of leather pairs for my boys when they were just starting to walk. Made it less slippery for them...but to be honest they both hated shoes and would pull them off very quickly. They also hated socks or slippers (pretty much anything on their feet) so they often were barefoot even in winter time.
