Who should pay?

Posted Tuesday, November 20, 2012, at 1:36 PM

Someone posted this question on Facebook and I was just wondering what others thought about it.

If your child's glasses are broken on the playground or in PE or other class during incidental contact with another child...non-combative or non-competitive, should the other child's parent be partially responsible for repairs or replacement? The same could be asked of clothing, shoes, equipment etc. What do you think?

I have boys. There has been several times my boys came home from Sacred Heart School and had torn shirts, collars that needed repaired, etc. I was always told it was "just part of playing football"...so, I would say NO.

My name is Leah Cauthron. I was born and raised on a farm near Cushing, Iowa. My parents still live there. I am a conservative Catholic. I have been married to Randy for 22 years and we have six children. I received my degree in Criminal Justice from Eastern Wyoming College and as a mother of six and a daycare mom, I have used probable cause, reasonable doubt, search and seizure, Miranda rights, submission, arrest and interrogation technique as a part of my daily life. I can also shoot a .357 magnum with deadly accuracy. I have lots of opinions on lots of things. I am not an expert on anything but I read a lot and will gladly share that information if I find it accurate. I have a sarcastic nature and for the most part I have pretty thick skin and most things don't bother me for long. I don't like mudslinging or name calling so keep negativity of the personal nature to yourself. Enjoy and welcome to my opinion.
