Today I refused to kill a spider in my daughters room! I want her to learn how to do it herself. She will soon be a grown woman, and I think she needs to be able to kill her own spiders! Or am I wrong about this?

Quoting mumsy2three:

My teen will kills spiders/bugs herself. I sometimes have to kill them for my sons (10 and 7 y/o), sometimes my dd will kill them for her brothers.

Has she always killed her own spiders or is this something she has started doing when she got older?

I want to say she was squishing her own spiders by pre to early teen age. We live in the country so bugs and spiders are a given around here. The spiders we make hubby kill, if he's home, are the big gross furry wolf spiders. Yuck~ they make all of us cringe, lol.

If the spider/bug is outside we leave it alone, but if it's in the house it's dead, lol. I don't like spiders/bugs.

They catch and release. I kill so usually they won't even tell me because they have soft hearts for spiders.

I'm not afraid I just don't like them in my house. Smashing them is my method of choice. LOL
