do you let your kids jump on the bed?

Some times I do. I pull her bed to the middle of the room, surround it by pillows & stand right there.

  • NO, bad for the mattress, bad for the boxsprings, bad for the bedframe, bad for the slats holding the mattress into the frame. And I broke my collarbone as a child when I jumped off my parents bed and hit the windowsill.

  • nope. never have. We teach or kids to respect furniture. One time our oldest then 2 was jumping on the bed I was right there and she fell backwards and turned when she fell and fell flat on her face and I thought she broke her nose. Luckly she didn't. She was bleeding pretty good though. I wasn't alowing her to do it I was putting on my makeup and turned around to tell her to stop she hurried and got down then I turned back to finish she started jumping again and then I turned around and I was telling her you better sit down and then she fell off. Anything can happen so I don't ever let my kids jump on bed, or any furniture.

  • No, but a babysitter let them and one of my kids fell and ended up getting stitches. I was pissed at her for letting it happen.

  • We will jump on it together sometimes, but I try not to let him do it without supervision

  • Nope, but our beds are pretty much crap so I don't want them to break.
