My son will be 1 at the end of the month and has learned how to climb on the couch. He climbed on the futon before, since it was lower, but we just turned it around. We need somewhere to sit so we can't turn around the couch. He doesn't know how to get off, and also tries to climb from the couch to the microwave. I can't watch him all of the time because I need to get dinner ready and do dishes at least (his father doesn't get home until around his bedtime). How do I either stop him from climbing on the couch or show him how to get off properly? I've tried telling him no and taking him off but he keeps doing it.
