My daughter cheated on her exams so I gave her dog away as punishment – now people are slamming me as a bad parent | The Sun

A MUM was so furious at her daughter for cheating on an assignment at school that she gave away the family dog.

The woman explained that her daughter is very bright but refuses to work hard and wasn't at all sorry when she was caught out for cheating.

So in response, she followed through with her threat of re-homing the much loved pup.

Taking to Reddit, she said: "My daughter has always been that smart kid who relies purely on that to go from grade to grade.

"She never does her homework, never pays attention in class and studies the very morning of a test.

"Miraculously she still good enough marks in all he subjects except for history.

"A couple months ago she had an essay coming up and I spoke to her and said that she needs to do a whole a lot better in it than she did in her last history test (37 per cent).

"She blew me off so I told her that if she didn't at least get above 55 per cent I was going to give her dog away to the boy next door.

"Still she didn't take me seriously but agreed that she'll even get an 80.

"We laughed about it and when the results came back she got 78 per cent. We laughed about it and took her out for a celebratory lunch out with her father."

But the mum's pride was burst when she made a discovery.

She said: "I was cleaning up in her room and found this box filled with old papers and tests from the previous year.

"After looking through a few I saw an essay which looked familiar. I read it and felt that there was something off so I took it and asked my daughter if I could re read her one. They were almost identical.

"When I confronted her about it she lied and said it was her first draft.

"Finally at the end she said it was Debbie's (an older friend of hers) who wrote it for the same assignment a couple years back.

"I did get upset and shouted at her before she went off to her room. No sense of regret or feeling bad about it.

"So I took her dog and went next door to give it to our neighbours.

"She's been crying ever since and her father is calling me an a****** but I feel like she needs to understand that there are consequences for every action."

Fellow Reddit users were quick to comment on the situation.

One person said: "Dogs are pets and part of the family. They aren't punishments.

"Find a different way to punish her. You are punishing the dog too and it didn't do anything wrong."

While another said: "Yes there are are consequences for your actions. Giving away her dog is NOT one of those consequences."

And a third said: "There's got to be a better parenting method than emotionally wrecking and torturing your kid."
