    Go real slow when you first do them so you don't have to worry about messing up. Also the ledge should be as low as it can with your pegs still being able to hit the top of it. Once your into the grind stay centered over your bike, but once you get to the end of whatever you are grinding then lean away from the ledge slightly and hop out. As with your foot coming off maybe you should try and get new shoes or pedals with more grip.

    start grinding on the other side and you'll learn to keep that foot on, then switch to grinding on the other side and your foot wont come off, because its used to staying on. believe me, this works. its how i learned.

    Go pegless!!
    Im useless at grinds on pegs so i just do pedals. it can be quite hard on pedals tho because you have to go about a few things opposite

    The easiest thing to do is not take your foot off. I used to take my foot off when i was trying double peg stalls on a quarter, then I decided one day I wasn't going to take my foot off and low and behold I was doing them that day. Its not your pedals or your shoes.. its almost an uncontrolable thng in your head, but you have to control it and just not take your foot off.

    Back when I ran pegs, the way thatI learned to keep the foot on was to press down into the ledge. Once I got used to grinding (slowly...) with that, I gradually raised the pedal up so it didn't hit anymore.
