Dear all, I will be moving from a flat (horizontal) to a house with a set of stairs to the second floor (where the bedrooms are). I am worried about my DC who is almost 3 years old - she already climbs stairs well but on a daily basis?? It seems to me quite dangerous...what do you think? Am I worrying too much?
We love in a firstfloor walkup flat and DS 1 will be 3 in July. We spent a lot of time last year teaching him to be safe, hold the side, go down on his bottom one step at a time etc. He is competent now to the point that I don't worry about him on steps any more. It did take time, but is very possible.
She'll just learn how to do it. I live in Australia in what the Australians call a two story house. I'm the only one of my friends who has stairs and when I first got here I couldn't believe the great big children who were coming round to play that couldn't manage stairs very well at all, as they had just been in them in shops and things!
