A ver si te vas a caer.

Hola, me gustaría traducir lo siguiente :

"Ponte bien, A VER SI te vas a caer"

Contexto: Frase dicha por un adulto a un niño que se está echando para atrás en la silla.

The closest I can think of would be "Get upright, YOU DON'T WANT TO fall/ YOU MAY fall " but of course I don't know if that's natural or if there's something better because none of those seem to have the same nuance to me.

Thank you.

    La construcción de la frase original suena muy extraña para estos oídos no españoles. ¿Será lo mismo que "siéntate derecho, no te vayas a caer"?

    Its more like "Sit still or you're likely to fall and then what?"

    Better said is "Sit still before you wind up [end up] on the floor."
