What would you do if you found your 2 young children had put the pet in the toilet ...

and then the oldest peed on the pet?
What's an appropriate discipline or reaction to this occurrence?

  • What kind of pet? I think if the pet is still alive, I would make them clean the pet....and be responsible for it for a few weeks. Or maybe even consider getting rid of the pet...if they can't treat it with respect...then they don't deserve it.

  • I would spank them and put them in the corner (5 mins). I would also take away TV privilidges.

  • 4 and 5 should know better.. Find the cat a new home before they kill it. My brother did that when he was that young, he threw my cat in the washing machine while it was running. Then a few weeks later he dunked it in paint, the cat survived. I was so sad I had to find a new home for it before he killed it.

  • Often small children don't know why they do something. In the discipline class i took at the local college they tell you to never ask a child why ...because they rarely understand their own actions.

    They already shared 90% of the responsibility for the cat. Including cleaning the litter box.
