Doing certain things??
My 5 yo DD constantly hassles the cat, usually in the morning when me and DH aren't up yet and all we can hear is the cat meowing either in pain or because she is restraining him so he won't run away from her. I have told her countless times not to do this, I've given her time out and sat down with her and explained that she can physically hurt him as he is only a small cat. I've also explained to her that the reason he runs away from her is because she isn't nice to him so have tried to encourage nice, gentle behaviour towards him but she just does not listen. And he doesn't ever scratch her so she won't learn from that either.
The other thing she constantly does is run in the house. I have ALWAYS told her that she isn't allowed to do this because she could hurt herself or someone else (she comes around corners so fast and almost bowls me over sometimes!) She even hurt herself because of running in the house, she cut her head open and had 3 stitches, we had to physically hold her down to get them so it was a long, traumatic experience. Doesn't matter, she still runs in the house several times a day. I honestly don't know how to get her to stop this as I am like a broken record telling her to stop all the time. I've given her time out and explained what can happen and she just does it again 5 minutes later. I don't think she is purposely trying to defy me, I think she just gets excited and forgets or whatever but I still don't want her doing it!
I know these 2 things seem silly but I really need advice. I am genuinely worried about her safety when running all the time especially after cutting her head open and the cats safety too (she tried to ride him once and if she had of fell on him she could have killed him!)
