comment How can I teach my son to ride a bike?
Not sure about the downvote. Steering is just as important as balance. Many people get hurt when they get scared, focus on the thing that scares them (like a curb or car) and steer directly into it. Target Fixation (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Target_fixation)

+1: Disagree with you HM. I think P.Turpie is suggesting a parent should select a teacher/school that knows when to trust children. Not one that doesn't trust them.

comment How can a young child be taught not to bully?
I disagree that in an 18 month old bullying is bad parenting or bad experiences. More likely it's completely natural.

I would add to the don't be embarrassed concept. Never make parenting decisions based on your feelings of embarrassment. Do what is best for the child. Sometimes that will be embarrassing sometimes it will help alleviate the embarrassment.
