find a slick floor in your house( ie linoleum,or tile,or hardwood).
put wool socks on.
run acroos the floor and hockey stop in your socks.
train your muscles to do the motion. and learn to shift your weight.
it may sound dumb, but this (and skating obviously) is how we taught our boys to stop. they are 5 and 7 and both can spray snow with their "hockey" stops.
