Well, I explained to her that what she did was wrong, that I'm glad she likes to read and buy books, but it was still wrong. So I took her stuff away from her and told her she would have to earn them back. I also made her take her own money to pay for yesterday and todays lunch. Lunch is only $1 a day, so it was only $2. She started crying and hollering about how it wasn't fair and how mean I am and she doesn't like me anymore. Oh well, what's new????
Her dad tells me that she is just a little girl and I should overlook it, but I think that's what's wrong with older kids now, too many people have overlooked too many things for too long. She needs to learn now that we don't always get what we want when we want them. I had every intention of giving her money today, but I didn't because of what she did yesterday. My son and I have both had the flu this week so I haven't had a chance to go to the bank, that's why I didn't have the cash yesterday and I couldn't go to the school and write a check while I was sick.
Anyway, sorry this is so long, I am just really frustrated.
