What would you do if your daughter (17) dropped a plate of yours on purpose after you got mad at her because she's refusing to do chores?

That wouldn’t happen to me in first place because of how well I raised my kids to be well behaved and to be able to control their emotions well

Ground her until she was able to pay for a new one, then find kevin and shoot him in the head while she’s grounded. Kevin is an abusive piece of sh*t who I seriously hope gets raped in prison someday.

have her clean it up.

grab the shards of the broken plate and cut her hands open with them. that will teach her and she will know to respect your belongings in the future.

First of all make her clean up the mess she made by dropping the plate, second take away whatever privilege she thinks is better than doing chores (probably the thing(s) she had been doing before/ when the argument started) And thirdly if she can't respect your items why should you allow her to buy her own items to put in your house? If she has an allowance take it away. Also if she has her own money have her pay to replace the plate and if she has no money she needs to work to replace it.

I wouldnt say anything, I would just go and get the belt. She will know what she has to expect in a moment.

We don't give allowances. Why should you pay a child to clean up dishes they ate your food off of? It's free food for them so they should help clean the dishes. But, I'd write her a bill for the plate and tell her she owed me money for it. If she complained tough she would pay for it. If she refused to give me money for it I'd take it out other ways such as not buying her favorite food at the grocery store, giving money for the movies or something like that. She'd eventually pay for it in one way or another.

just destroy something that means something to her. her phone or laptop. since you probably paid for it you have every right to do so.

Take whatever it costs out of her allowance . When everyone has calmed , sit down and try to talk about chores and the importance of doing her part.

I wouldn't get too worked up over the plate though - at 17, the impulse control isn't really there.

Olivia 08/10/2018.

If my daughter did that she’d be grounded and I’d take her phone and whatever electronics of hers away. That is definitely not acceptable behavior. A lot of kids (not all though) don’t believe in doing chores and 95% of the time they get away with it. I think that it’s very important that kids do chores because it teaches them responsibility and it’ll help ensure that they won’t be lazy (well I hope not at least) when they grow up. YOU are the parent so enforce the rules and if they don’t like it then punishments are an option. Good luck!

I would be disappointed. I don't expect such behaviour from a 17 year old girl who is close to being an adult.

Was it just an ordinary plate or some heirloom?
