#56 would you like a cookie to go with your special snowflake award? And it's extremely rude to call someone else's child below average or say they belong in special ed especially for something like that. For goodness sake she's six! Of course she'll do stupid shit every now and then because that's what kids do. It's the parent's job to tell kids which stupid shit is okay to do and which isn't. To say that she must be stupid shows that you have very little experience with kids and you're extremely judgemental
I've seen kids do things like that haha, just explain to her that carpets don't have grooming needs
poor carpet didn't even have a chance, but she's 6, shouldn't she know better?
You don't seem to get it. Six year olds will do stupid things. That's how they learn a lot of the time. Also, most of the time as a parent/guardian you can't predict what your kids are going to do so you can only make a rule about something or tell them it's wrong to do it AFTER they've already done it. You seem to have really unrealistic expectations of parents and kids so you must not have much experience with young children.
you can't put up a carpet. and not every six year old is the same. this also has probably happened to kids older and younger than six. some kids, despite age, like to cut things because being young, they think it will regrow like their own hair. after learning that this is not the case or being scolded by their parents, they normally do not do it again. it has nothing to do with being a specific age, kids are kids and will make mistakes until they are told that it is wrong.
It is not a matter of placing things out of reach. My mother tried very hard with me but I took things I liked and hid them very very well. I took scissors to my hair the scissors that had been missing for at least three months. And just because they don't understand how things like that work doesn't make them not clever. Many things adults do not see as tools are tools to young children
