I look after a 7.5 year old girl. She has a bad attitude and is quite rude often. Anyhow, she recently intentionally broke some little pieces of furniture from this Rapunzel toy set my daughter got for Christmas. I put them away and turn around to put some books away and she was the only child in the room with me and about one minute after I put them away she comes up to me saying 'Look, someone broke these'. I was still in the room, no one else came into it and she was the only one in there. I talked to her dad and said these toys will need to be replaced. My daughter is upset about it. He said he didn't want to buy the whole set but the furniture cannot be replaced separately. Eventually agreed but now says they will not replace them and it's the risk I run for looking after other peoples kids. I agree accidents happen, but in my opinion you don't accidentally break off toy table and chair legs and bend other toys back and forth until they break. This isn't the first time she's done this, but it is the first time I've asked for them
To replace something. Opinions?
