Ss has live with us for 5 years. He is hard on them. He is forever running in the beds and "accidently" stomping the flowers. He often makes eye contact with me, looks down, steps out of his way to step on a group of flowers. Then makes eye contact again. He is clearly looking for attention. Ahhhhhh. He has even taken to digging holes in the yard
5 damn years of this.any plants have died or broken off to struggle for life. He runs through the beds..... we have a huge yard and he literally has 100 acres to stomp around....where does he stomp? On the Lilly's my great grandmother's mother passed down through the generations. Grrrr.
We have tried. Reminders. Gardening with him. Giving him his own flowers so he would maybe not want to hurt them. Gardening when he isn't home so he isn't resentful to the flowers. Spankings. Scoldings. Taking away toys or games. Time out. Added chores. Positive reenforcement when he get caught being good. its been 5 years. Wtf
