  • What stopped my son was him falling off the couch. It didn't really hurt him, but it scared the crap out of him. I just went to the kitchen to get him his juice and saw him climbing on the couch. When he saw me looking at him, he just dove off so I wouldn't get him down. lol he hasn't climbed like that since. He still climbs but no diving...

  • Even falling doesn't phase my son..he will fall, laugh, and get right back up and start climbing again!!
