As your child becomes stronger and can stand more steadily, he will try to stand without support for short periods of time. You can encourage him to practice by giving your child a toy while he's standing. To get the toy, he'll need to let go of his support, but don't force him if he's scared or uncertain. You can also help your child strengthen his sense of balance by having him stand up, then sit down, and then stand up again.
