Our house is big so we got a roomate my bestfriend for 10 years and then her boyfriend moved in well my son got a hold of her boyfriends video game and scratched it so bad it doesn't work my son is only 18 months so he didn't purposely do this. Of course since I am a stay at home mom I usually know what my son gets into 99% of the time other then when I am doing dishes or something if my son's quit its usually a good thing my son knows how to open my xbox and take out the dvds and games and whatever he also knows how to put them back so I know it is possible that he could have done this. My bestfriend confronted to me that you know JJ broke the game and I said that I would replace it but her boyfriends going to have to wait because I can't just shit out 60 dollars on a video game specially since we just spit out our rent and electric bill car insurance and our phones their all due at the same time. I have this firm thought and explained to her that you can't leave stuff where my son can reach it specially if it's important to you. I go to the bathroom like a normal being, I do dishes, I go into the laundry room blah blah blah so clearly their are times of the day that I let my be in a room by himself. My son knows that if you take out a dvd and put it back it will autostart playing the show thats why he does that. I told my husband what happened and he said I shouldn't have told them I would replace it since it could have gotten scratched on their doing like if they put it down somewhere dropped it blah blah. So now I am just stumped because my husbands upset with me because he loves video games and we havn't been able to afford that one yet and now we have to buy it for someone else. I just don't know what to do in this situation.
**** Let me also mention that they constantly leave things out and then get mad when he touches it so they know how touchy my son is once no one is looking.
