My daughter has reached the "climbing on everything" stage. I tried teaching her the proper way of getting off of things she climbs on, ie. laying on her tummy and scootching off. She gets it really well, but it's when she doesn't mean to get off that is the problem. She's almost 1 (July 4th) so I don't think she understands to be careful around the edge of things and she winds up flipping off sometimes. How do I teach her either to be careful or not to climb up in the first place? I don't want to prevent her learning and I know climbing is just a stage, but I don't want her to get hurt.
