The Mom Quiz #4: If your kid broke a special vase, how would you react?

Posted by   + Show Post

Q4: One of your kids has been playing with a ball inside the house and just broke a beautiful vase your grandmother had given you. What is your first reaction?

A.    You hug him and ask him if he is hurt.

B.    You tell him not to worry but to try to be more careful the next time.

C.    You feel a little sorry about what happened since it was a nice gift from your grandmother, but the anger disappears soon.

D.    You ask your child to continue playing outside.

E.    You run to get the broom to clean up the bits of glass so no one gets hurt.

F.    You laugh out loud so he doesn’t start crying and say "I’m glad! It was about time to replace such an old vase!"

I don't have breakable stuff in the house.  No expensive hand me downs simply because of the responsibility.  Not worth the stress.

None of those are my first reaction. What about me crying about the special item? What about the child learning consequences for his actions?

I'd stare at them with an expression that would hopefully convey "REALLY?! You've destroyed something ELSE? Do I need to say anything?" I'd then (holding onto my calm with an iron fist) instruct the child on how to clean up their mess. When finished, I'd send them outside to continue playing (disallowing the ball to return into the house at all).
