My 5-year-old daughter won't leave the dog and cats alone. She's constantly getting in their faces, grabbing them, chasing them, etc. She was always very caring and respectful toward them until about 2 months ago. They've scratched and bit her before to get her away from them, but she won't stop. I've sat her down and told her that what she's doing isn't nice and that she's going to hurt them, but it doesn't work. I've done everything short of getting rid of the pets, which isn't an option. Help! She's even started doing it to other people's pets.
