How many times?

My little guy never seems to learn from experience. He will run into the same wall on purpose, bang his head on the hardwood floor, get himself stuck in his toy box, jab his finger in his eye and so many other painful things about a thousand times a day and doesn't seem to "get it"
How many times does it take before your kid "gets it" that it will hurt them if they do something crazy? I am starting to think he never will, my brother is like that even as adult. Lol

    With my youngest, most things take multiple times for her to catch on to, but the other day, she decided to hang on the dishwasher door and it opened and she fell over flat on her back. 4 days and she still hasn't messed with the dishwasher again. lol

        Lol our oldest used to do that. We eventually got tired of it, and taught her a saying, "man up". So now, anytime she hurts herself, she says that and normally doesnt do it again

          When he hurt himself if we can tell it's not bad we just look away. Most of the time he will be fine if we don't get caught looking at him. But he does the same thing again five seconds later. Lol
