my 9 year old daughter left some slime she made on the top of a buffet that my parents bought when they were first married. it's a very nice piece of furniture i took when they passed away. it ruined the finish and there's an obvious round stain in the finish you can see from across the room. i'm not that crushed about it but apparently my daughter is. wife talked to her about it last night and she feels absolutely horrible. she's supposed to tell me about it tonight. i told my wife i think we should make her pay for part of the repair, likely not the whole thing as it's going to cost a few hundred to fix, but perhaps 10% or 20%. my wife said she feels awful enough and we should drop it. am i going to far trying to teach personal accountability by making her come up with $50 to $75?
edit: thanks for the comments OG. gave her a pass. told her to be more careful with that slime.
