Not an expert, but I'll give my two cents worth. I have a ton more experience on dirt than on the street (started in the dirt as a young guy) - I personally think teaching/experiencing the dirt first for at least a few years - then they can consider the street. I always tell my kid, I use the street basically to get me to the good dirt riding. But safety lessons all the time should work.
