my little one is climbing up on things and iam paranoid he going to crack his head. he standing on the table and jumping off he going to hurt himself.and some times he do.he climb up in windows and beat on the window this really scares me,the reason being my cousin son climbed in the window and the window was up and he fell two story down he died he was only 2 years old.and the other day my daughter was sleep and he was sleep also she awaken to find our baby holling her name mame,mame he was hanging off 12 steps outside the door he had open the door while she was asleep and went outside. he only hanging on by a thread his little fingers.when he saw her come to help him he was so happy he now scared to go out the door.this little guy is something else he is so busy all day long.

WOuld have sacared me too. I do think that all kids go thru this stage my grand daughter jumps off the couch and a stoll and its hard to get her to stop a swat on the butt stops her. The only thin that would hurt her if she went outside alone would getting in the street I make sure the door is locked and secure. If I nap she has paper and penceil writting or looking at her books. She loves to write and draw.

Make sure that you have safety windows and doors that cannot be opened by your toddler. They are very inquisitive at this age and they do experiment with their surroundings. © ronaldinu 2008

Sounds pretty serious. If I were you I'd do all I can to stop him from climbing! I was scared when my son just climbed up on the kitchen table. I pulled him off right away, got down to his level, and with a very stern voice I told him no climbing.

Wow! That is scary. I would move everything away so that he can't get up on high things were he can seriously injure himself. My daughter likes to climb and sorta jump off things but usually it is like her mini couch she has which is like three inches from the floor. Nothing to bad. I would put locks on your windows and make sure they are locked at all times. I would also put higher locks on your doors so he can't get out by himself. I would find things that really interest him too, to keep him from climbing. If he is really active then have planned activities for him so he is constantly busy. Hope that was helpful. Good luck.

I think that little boy needs someone to watch him 24/7 hehehe. What makes him that hyperactive? My boys are quite active too, they jump in beds and sofa sets, they climb windows (all our windows have grills and always something soft below it) and they even think of sliding down the stairs (which I will never allow them to do). Boys can be pretty adventurous, we just have to learn how to guide them and monitor them. We have to learn to give them enough freedom to enjoy and explore but not to much that is will risk their safety.
