Safe Kitchen Island Seating for Kids?

Q: My friends and I here in Philadelphia all have kitchen islands with bar stools of some sort in our homes. We also have children between the ages of two and four who are dying to join the grownups up high, but they inevitably end up falling off a stool while sitting or attempting to climb up it. Has anyone come up with a solution for this problem? Extra-sturdy, climbable chairs? Built-in benches? I would love to hear your thoughts. -Sent by Courtney

Editor: This is such a great question, and I'm going to think about it every time the Property Brothers state that the breakfast bar with high stools would be "perfect for the kids". What advice do you have for Courtney and friends (and many fellow readers, I'm guessing) that will save their kids from tumbles while making the most of their kitchen layout?
