Hmm, mine do this. It's taken a few near misses to get them to move further away from the top but they still race up the stairs, do funny walks down the stairs, play halfway up etc.

I remember doing this as a kid too. I think at that age you just have to trust them to be aware of the dangers.

Well, I don't see how a gate at the top of the stairs can be any more dangerous.

Or...read the newspaper and pretend to read about a child who was playing with a sibling on the stairs and fell down them seriously injuring themselves. Ok, it's a fib, but if it makes them think, perhaps?
