My DD just threatened to stab her sister!

Dd12 was standing in the kitchen when her older sister (19) started teasing her about a crush. Dd replies "shut up or I'll slice your throat and watch all the blood pour out" before bursting out laughing at our shock. I've taken her ipad/phone and spent an hour talking to her about how horrible that was. She thinks dd19 is in the wrong and then went through dd19's room, found her diary, found out who she was dating and then began teasing her. Dd simply laughed and said "and?".

Ideas on what to do with dd12? She is not allowed to watch violent or sexual content.

Your DD needs an evaluation. It is not normal tween behavior to joke about something like that.

That is not funny at all. I would be tempted to call 911 and have her taken to the hospital for a psych evaluation. If you did that I guarantee she would never utter those disgusting words again. She would be grounded for weeks if not months for that stupid stunt

I would suggest getting her into therapy it's not normal especially at her age to joke about something so serious and a major overreaction on her part.

I can do an evaluation without calling 911. I don't want to take a bed from someone who actually needs it

Trust me. I'm considering it. I just don't want to take therapy from someone who actually needs it

True but it might scare her more because the police would be there also.

True. I've just heard so many horror stories. I don't want her put on drugs unnecessarily

She needs it and now while she's still young so she doesn't end up doing something worse when she gets older.  If the therapist decides she doesn't need it anymore they will dismiss her so you won't be taking any room for someone who needs it.
