i would never have assumed my child did something like that intentionally so it struck me as odd that she would consider it.
I agree it does strike as a bit odd to consider it as a possibility
If it were me, I would get my kid another one and teach her how to look after it.. It's all part of teaching your kid responsibility I would do this because I knew she was happy with the pet in the first place, and how she felt bad after the accident..To make her feel better getting another one would most likely work out well in the end .. My daughter was harping looking a puppy..I asked her, was she willing to clean up after it and walk, feed and look after it.?. Once I said clean up after it, she said no, and that put an end to that...I will not allow her to have a pet, knowing she will not take care of it properly..
