  • We don't at my house.. it's too dangerous! They could easily fall off and smack their head on something.

  • My BILs and SILs, which is fine with me if their kids do it at home, but boy do they get offended when it happens at someone else's house and the homeowner/family member says something.

  • Ah, the fun of jumping on the bed! How I remember the days (and how beds were better built then). Now my boys have the memories of such a joyous time! Even today, we all will bounce (now on a trampoline) cos we feel the exhilaration. I did not put my boys in a dungeon to prevent them from enjoying childhood. :)

  • I have. I put the mattress ont he floor and told them to go nuts, lol. Then I sat back and watched them do just that. :)

    They aren't allowed to stand up nor jump on my couch or beds with the mattress on them.
