He can do this, but not sh*t in a toilet? What a disappointment of a child.

Mister C- Because there is a big difference between 12 months and 22 months developmentally. Though I`m impressed a 22 month old could do this, I`d be SHOCKED if you said a one year old could do this.

Also, its not hard to figure out 22 months means two months from two years old. Simple math.

"So what happens if he falls?"

A big loud `thomp!` and a very loud crying kid, for hour or so.

Then and climbing again...

I`m not a fan of the month thing either, Mister C. Say 1 year 10 months or something. 22 months makes my brain have to think.

bataleon27, I agree and if there is a thick layer of open cell foam 12" thick or more(which would be good) that doesn`t stop an arm or leg going the wrong way on a crash landing? None-the-less, I give two thumbs up.

That`s the coolest thing I`ve seen on the interwebs in a long time. I`m assuming the floor has good baby soft landing stuff down there? I am impressed. Mom & Dad get a massive thumbs up on that gig.

All that muscle control and it would seem he still fills his diaper.

@bataleon27 not really, young children are more resistant than it seems, also they have more elastic bones and less tense muscles than adults that helps to avoid lots of injuries. Toddlers rarely have broken bones that sometimes seems impossible when you look at what are they doing. Of course it doesn`t mean they should be allowed to do anything but in this case well padded floor it`s enough.

I think it`s cool. People are too protective of kids now days.
Also, I don`t understand how toddlers can do stuff like rock climbing, yet still haven`t figured out how to not crap their pants.

It`s a bouldering wall, which means that floor below him is a good 18 inches of padding. The kid is also not climbing higher than 5 foot, which is as high as he would be carried about by his parents, which is somehow ok for every other kid in the world?

as a rock climber, I`m kind of surprised at the parents for allowing their child to climb that high (relative to his size) without protection. If he`s taken a fall (easily done at that age without much coordination or body strength), he could quite easily have broken an arm, even with a padded floor.

Despite the explanations. I would just say he is almost 2. It`s still impressive, either way.

parent of the year candidate? yay, your kid can climb, but any parent sees how much a <2 year old tumbles around while just walking/running, now stick them up 6+ft in the air w/o a harness/landing bag

When my daughter was that age she tried to scale the breakfast-nook stool and now has a scar. Impressive, my little friend!

""22 month year old" ... why do people say that? 1 year old is fine, but for some reason people note babies in months, even after a year."

Teaching student here.

Without going into it too much, it`s because of how fast young kids develop. For example, the same kid at a 9 months old, and later at 12 months old, while only 3 months different age wise will be hugely different developmental wise, both physically (preparing to crawl an what not) and what they are now mentally capable of.

This continues right up into primary, FYI. Most kinder and pre primary learning programs will not months and years to make sure their students fall within `normal` developmental ranges.

In primary this is replaced by growth points (pushing them to the next `level` of understanding, ie, MAIs) and year levels though.

TL;DR You have probably not spent much time around kids. Even most non parents will notice the whole months thing makes sense.

It`s easy for kids to climb... they have less weight to lift

Mister_C probably have never seen a baby. My son is 18 months old and he`s totally different kid now than when he was 12.

Mister_C, people usually stop the month thing after 2 years. Think about a 1 year old (12 months) versus a 1 year old (22 months). The 22 month old is much closer to being 2 years, but it`s not quite 2 years yet. There`s a huge difference between a 12 month old and a 22 month old, so that`s why they use months instead of years.

I`m guessing the baby`s done this enough times that they figured they didn`t need excessive padding? Hope so anyway. That was interesting anyway :3

Impressive; What would be even more impressive is a two year old that doesn`t crap his pants.

And if he fell? No padding below him? Shady parenting for a baby that young.
