My youngest gets whatever she wants. Edited to add ages. Edited again because I'm confusing people.

My older dd (DD8) has no self control. She chews on things constantly and does things she knows she is not supposed to do. For instance; my younger dd (DD3) has a furby. She uses the box that the furby came in as the furby's house. DD8 tore it a bit so I told her to stop, your sister plays with that. An hour later she is jumping up and down on the box and has it all but destroyed it. Even though she KNOWS she is not to tear it up. Another example is she cut the hair on one of DD3s dolls. And another example is she chewed on the feet of one of DD3s barbies. DD8 does this to her own toys too so its not as if she is doing it out of jealousy.

So my new rule is if DD8 ruins one of DD3s toys, DD3 gets to pick one of DD8 toys to keep. I feel its only fair. This excludes of course her favorite two stuffed animals that are very special to her. What do you think?


ETA They are 8 and 3. Older dd has Sensory Processing Disorder.

Why aren't your oldest youngest daughter's toys being put up & away from your monster spawn?

Sorry I got confused with all the ODD and YDD shit -__-

I wouldn't exclude any of your older DDs toys. Maybe if she loses something she loves, she'll stop being such a brat.

I think that's a reasonable rule.
