My teen daughter takes things of ours and hides them. Its usually important to us but not to her.Usually things that will really mess your whole day up make you late but you have to find it!Shoes shirts ect... Its very frusterating.My sons new shoe dissapeared off of my bed.We couldn't fid it for days then my favorite walking shoe dissapeared.I carefully had these shoes where I knew where they are.Different things happen all the time.One time I couldnt fid my favorite strapless bra ad I was running late for an appointment.I came home ad there it was laying in front of my closet where I had searched for 2-3 times already.I know it was intentionally placed there after the evet after it had inconveienced me.Back to the shoes.I took all of my daughters shoes bagged them up and told her she would not get any of them back until the other shoes are found.She began screaming asking me if I was taking away my favored childs shoes as well.I said no because he didn't hide his own shoe. I left and came home and she had both pairs in the middle of the living room floor.She said she found one in bottom of laundry basket and the other in the closet where once again we had searched multiple times and I am certain that shoe was not in that closet.Other thigs have gone on like cut cheese holes in my favorite expensive satin sheets.holes cut with scissors in my husbands work shorts and shirts! Ive just started doing things back to her.If she cuts mine I cut hers! IDK if thats right but it seems that everytime she is disciplined or she is upset with us about something she doesn't like we know something is going to end up missing or damaged.Our silverware and dishes dissapear as well as our neighbors silverware as well.She went through all of my Christmas ornament gave some away to neighbors without asking me ad I found pretty much the rest of them emptied out and crushed to pieces i the backyard but she denies doing it!!!One time my sons new flip flop was cut with scissors so I grabbed her new aeropostale flip flops that I just bought for her and cut those.She knew right away I had done it and I told her yes dont ever cut anyones shoes again.Then she says wow how will everyone feel when they know my mom cut my flip flop! I dont know if I should do it back however if shes going to lie about it and continue to do it.I feel necessary to get even because I refuse to be punished in my own home!!!!!!!!
