Narration:
Sometimes it's just too dangerous for someone to use the stairs without supervision and you need to limit access.

When possible, consider trying a monitoring device. For example, a motion sensor with a remote alarm can alert you, even when you're in another room, when he arise(s) from an afternoon nap. Or a baby monitor may pick up the sounds as he walks across the bedroom. This can give you the time you need to be at his side to offer assistance.
