Do your kids walk on the couch???

I have 4 boys and they are constantly walking on the furniture! Mainly my oldest who is 10. And if something is on the floor he has to stand on it or mess with it with his feet. That boy never sits still! LOL.

  • omg my 2 and 3yr old do this ALL THE TIME and it's so aggravating having to tell them to stop over and over and over and over again. now i just pick them up, take them down, take their hand and silently take them to time out. i'm tired of opening my mouth and telling them over and over. they'll learn eventually, even if i end up having to spank them to get the point across.

  • My boys did the same thing when they were younger, they learned how to do back flips off the arm rest of the couch on to the cushions.
    They grew out of it.

  • No. Furniture is not made for walking on. Playing on the furniture like you all have described got my kids a spanking. They learned fast not to do it.

  • They have tried a few times to horse around on the couch...they get removed and may no longer be on the couch, to sit even for the rest of the day. When they are old enough to pay $1000 to replace my couch they can damage it anyway they wish.
