There are many reasons to give your toddler, "Jack" or "Jill," a recliner. The most important, or perhaps the most obvious, reason is that it is time that your child has a special chair. Picture a room in which each member of the family has a chair, either because he or she claimed it or because it's a tacit recognition.
There's Mom in her chair, Dad in his. Big Sis tends to spread out on the sofa, Big Brother is at his desk. So where does the toddler sit? Does Jill wait until someone lets her climb on? Or does Jack sit in a chair that's way too big for him and, therefore, not comfortable at all? Imagine what's going on in their minds. Toddlers need to have a chair! They are part of the family! So why not give them a really special chair, a recliner?
