Actually the angle of that back binding can make big difference on toe turns. I always set kids up with the back binding a little less, and even less when they are really young - for 7 up I normally give them something like 15 -9 or -6. Some people will say a slightly positive angle on the back foot of really small kids (4,5 y/o) helps out, the verdict is out on that one for me, I played around with it for a while and haven't really noticed much difference.

As far as stance width goes, I cant really give you any advice on that one, I just set it up to what looks right.
