Lately, our daughter has been acting up and it’s not easy to deal with.
She is always making things up and she’s not completely honest all the time.
Oftentimes, she will straight up lie about things to get one of her brothers in trouble if things aren’t going her way. She has been grounded a few times because of this. Well recently, she really made me mad when she started dribbling a basketball inside the house. I was trying to work in my office with the ideal temperature control settings which I set on the thermostat earlier. I couldn’t focus on my work with the noise the ball was making pounding the floor over and over again. I told her to take the basketball outside if she wanted to dribble. We also have the basketball hoop out there so she could always practice playing. Well, instead of just taking the ball outside, she threw the ball at the smart thermostat and it fell from the wall and broke. When I asked her why she broke the thermostat, she said she didn’t. I told her I saw her break it and then she said it was the ball that broke the thermostat. It was annoying that I had to point out that she threw the ball that broke the thermostat, therefore, she broke it. She still tried arguing and then she was grounded. This is the way she has been acting and now she will have to do extra chores until the new thermostat is paid for. I don’t know what has gotten into that girl lately.
