My daughter is 7 yrs old and has just joined our family in February. We have 2 dogs and 2 cats. At first she talked about how much she "loved" animals. We soon learned that every time we would leave the room for more than a couple minutes at a time, she would end up doing something that would hurt them. I honestly don't think she is trying to hurt the animals, but she would pull on their collar to get them to go over to her (one time it ended up putting the collar in the dogs mouth-still around his neck-causing him to choke, almost to death if I wouldn't have caught it). We try to show her the proper way to pet or even play with dogs. We have taken away the privelege of even petting the dogs but everytime we decide to give her another chance, she always goes to far. What else can I do?? I want her to be able to play with them, but not willing to get rid of the animals or let her hurt them anymore...
