My little daughter thinks its the best thing ever to crawl up on things. Well Just the other day I found her on the table eating crackers and helping herself to whatever is on the table...WHAT DO I DO? I can't help but laugh...and I don't want to give her a spankin...and I tell her NO. She really isn't hurting herself (until she falls off) BUT ITS DRIVING ME CRAZY!!!!!! she even moves the chairs around to get to my counters.

she will get hurt. You should stop it. my bro had some major damage when he fell off the table when he was 18 months old. She is also testing you and wanting to see how far she can go before you step in. If you think its funny she will too. If you show her that its wrong and spank her hand she will stop. Iron fist sweety! Iron fist!

my daughter is 21 months and she started do this last week. She's fallen off the chair 2 times, she cries but gets right back up. She knows she's not supposed to be on the table or standing on the chair, but she keep going right back up. We just tell her no she's going to get hurt and we take her off the chair. We push the chair in after we take her off and then off she'll go until she feels that she needs something from the table. I don't have any other advise, just keep telling her no and taking her down. that's what i'm doing.

the only thing i could do when this was happening to me is just make sure you dont leave anything on the tables!! i know its hard but they make a huge mess if you dont! or maybe just give her a little smack on her hand its not realy to hurt her just to let her know she has done something wrong? i dunno i dont have much advice lol

Me to. She hasnt figured out the crib thing yet but we keep doors closed at night because my husband works from 3 to midnight sometimes doesnt get home till 3 am or inbetween so we wont hear footsteps until she figures out how to open doors. LOL. She has almost got it down.

I dont know what to tell you but your not alone. Of course my daughter doesnt climb on the dinner table any more... i had to spank her for that and she stopped after a few days. She has moved on to pulling out her dresser drawers and Climbing onto her dresser. Well, it wouldnt be to bad if her dresser didnt have a hutch to it that goes almost to the ceiling. She tries climbing up the hutch too. I havent been able to keep her from doing it but she is starting to do it less frequent. All i can say is to spank her and tell her no. It has been working for me for certain items and it is working for the dresser its just taking alot longer. Her older brother encourages her. Its good he has learned to encourage he just needs to learn what to encourage her about like maybe potty training. LOL. Good luck
