Im a scrapbook so I have lots of good quality scrapbook paper.. My 7yo DD knows to ask for this paper 1st before taking..
Well, I'm cleaning out & reorganizing her craft drawers when i find a whole stack of my paper in here....

I scrapbook too and I guess I wouldn't be that mad.  Its just paper to me. IF you told her no and she broke your rule so I guess I would have some sort of punishment.

It's not about the paper... It's about not asking permission & taking so much to put in her drawer. She didn't just take a few pages to use right then. She took a whole stack (like a whole pack) & put in her craft drawer in her room to use later...

Is having a 7yo pay to replace paper a too harsh of a punishment?
Btw: the paper is now bent so unusable for me...

I would either make her pay for it or do extra chores around the house. I would also make her write "I will not take mommy's things without permission" 20 times.

I think it's perfectly reasonable.

Make her pay for it by doing chores or giving you $ she has.

Make her do chores also make her take a time out from her scrap booking.  She needs to know that this is not okay.

Just sit her down and tell her she knows to ask before she takes things, and if she wants a piece of paper to use to come ask you and you'll get it for her. She's old enough to know better
