So of course dd#2 DID borrow dd#1's bike. The bike was in the
basement where there was a back door out onto an alley. And she
taught herself to ride without any help and without training wheels. I
don't know how she did it, but it did not appear to damage the bike
any. By the time anyone had found out about it, it was too late.
So what would you have done?
I don't know, that's just it. I wouldn't let it go without some kind of
consequence. Well, actually she would probably have to fix the bike if it
needed it or get a new one. Probably not let her get a bike of her own?
I need a definite consequence for #3 taking things that don't belong to her.
But, what if it doesn't get ruined like #3 takes a shirt and wears it to
school without asking? Going into sisters' rooms without permission? This is
what I need help with. I can go with prevention and try to keep her busy.
But, what if she slips by me and goes up there and gets into things that
don't belong to her? If she has made a mess, she has to clean it up.
Repaying for objects that get ruined is a simple thing, but she doesn't get
any money right now for financial reasons.
