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!"

More like "What did you expect? I told you not to play ball in the house." 

I guess the closest is E.

I would probably have mixed emotions... Maybe a bit of everything.

I'd say C...But mainly it would be a combination of C, D and E

I would sternly reprimand my child, and punish her for playing with the ball in the house. Probably a loss of a privilege for a week or so.

D then E. At some point though, a conversation would be had about doing what you've been asked NOT to do and the consequences.

E, then talk about playing outside. My mom was a big time disciplinarian. If it was done a 2nd time, then there would be consequences. My husband is the rough one.
