As I read this I was struck by how we learn to walk. No one (I hope) sits down with a child and says,

"stand up straight, put your center slightly forward, yea that's it, now put your foot here, no here, then move your other foot here, then, wait you need to bend your knee more and relax a bit as you are kind of tense, that's better....."
That's because the infant will most likely look at you and say "wah."

Have you ever been to a rehabilitation center for adults who are "relearning" how to walk? Or learning how to use their new prosthetic arm? I'll bet you it's not, "Here's your new arm. Just wave it around some. Oh, you might poke your eye a few times, but you'll learn."
