He will not stay sitting down??

My 16 month old little boy will not stay sitting down on the couch no matter what I do. I have tried time outs (he stands and cries until he turns red, then finally 10 minutes later will half sit in order to get out). I popped him on the butt and that didn't work. I have tried continually taking him off the couch every time he stands on it.....

Any ideas?

My daughter just turned two, they are goers when they're young aren't they??? I have 2 children and I am still learning as with each child being different,... it can be difficult. My daughter loves to climb too,... maybe try having something else that is closer to the floor that is safe to climb, as they are curious, and they want to explore, if he is directed to climb on the safe "climbing spot" it may re direct him from climbing on the couch. I think that it is the being high up that they like, being more at oour level. One of those fisher price slides my do the trick, he can stand up on it to be high, and safe to get down????? Not an expert by any means,... but I hope that this helped you in some way.
