[Discuss-sudbury-model] "setting limits"

I'm curious where democratic education handles what most schools call
"setting limits". For example, let's say there was a group of children
jumping on some couches. They aren't in danger of hurting themselves, but of
course if this behavior continues, they will damage the couches. Let's say
"no jumping on couches" is not in the school lawbook yet. How would a
teacher at a democratic school react in the moment of finding these children
doing this?
