Does your toddler ever...

Sit on the coffee table? If so do you let them stay there or do you make them get off? When I turn my back my daughter always wants to sit on the coffee table like its the only spot in the living room comfortable enough to sit.

  • LOL! mine's legs are too short to get up there. =P You might try getting her a child's chair just her size. Maybe that will lure her away from the coffee table.

  • my son loves the coffee table . It has the perfect view of the TV, kitchen and dinning room all at the same time, it is like the command centre in the living room

  • Mine has tried, but since ours has a glass top we wont let him in fear that one day he may fall through.

  • Yes, they do. But just about everyone sits on our coffee table... It's just the norm here, I think ours is more comfy than the couch too...

  • We don't have a coffee table but I know if we had one, he would try, he tries to get on our kitchen table and I don't let him, I make him get off the table.

  • omg yeah they both do. i don't let them...although i find myself doing it sometimes without even thinking, like when i put them on the couch to put their shoes on, i sit on the coffee table to be in front of them. i don't even realize it until i get up. i try to keep them off of it, you give my kids an inch, they take a mile. next thing i know, they're on the top of the couch. ggrrr

  • As soon as my daughter started crawling, we put the coffee table in storage. She has a little dora table that she sits at though.
