My son is also a climber. we use a bad boy chair as punishment. If you smack his hand he gives us a look of that's all you got, but the bad boy chair actually makes him think (and cry). It only take 2 minutes of him sitting there to get our point across to him.

I can relate to sometimes missing the obvious! :) Yikes on the seizure -- hopefully the only one.

Marney: Also good advice. ~L~ I sometimes miss the obvious. Sleep deprivation can do that. :) Just got over the terror of my daughter's first (and hopefully only) seizure. What a life changer that was!

I know how annoying that is! My little boy is a climber and I decided to move the glass top table out of the house until he is old enough to not climb on it. I just figure it's the type of situation where he could get really, really hurt and it was not worth all of the stress of constantly telling him "no" about it. I agree that you have to set limits, and they need to learn them, but when it comes to a safety issue, it is sometimes better just to eliminate the temptation. As far as the window goes... since you can't really do anything to get rid of it, stay consistant and physically go over there and tell her "no" every time she goes over there. Soon she will learn.

Good luck!

I would physically remove her and give her some form of punishment (whatever you have decided is appropriate) and be consistent. She should get the idea after a few times. You just have to keep saying no, and even prevent her from getting into the window and on the table in the first place if you can. You have to be firm and don't go back on your original decision. This is just my advice though.
