Hypothetical situation-how would you react? Your child goes to another person's home. They draw a smiley face on the patio table in marker. The smiley is about the size of a dime. They admit to drawing it, but cannot tell you why they drew it. This is totally out of character for them. What do you do? Or..... A child comes to your home. They draw a smiley face on the patio table at your home, but it does not belong to you-it belongs to the landlord. They come into the house to tell you they 'dropped' the marker on the table, and when you examine the table, you realize there is most def. a deliberate smiley face on the white table, drawn in bright pink. They can't look you in the eye or tell you why they did it. What do you do? Dh and I are stumped. To me, the natural consequence would be re-painting the table, as I HIGHLY doubt it will come off with soap and water. But dh pointed out that we do not want a child painting the table-it would look terrible. I'd love to hear your opinions.
