One mother was so angry with her daughter for cheating on a school assignment that she gave the family pet away.
The woman explained that her daughter is very smart, but she refuses to work hard and is not at all sorry when she was caught cheating.
In response, she followed through on her threat to give the beloved pup a new home.
Speaking on Reddit, she said, “My daughter has always been this smart kid who just relies on it to get from class to class.
“She never does her homework, never pays attention in class, and studies on the morning of a test.
“Miraculously, she still gets good grades in every subject except history.
“A few months ago she had an essay coming up and I spoke to her and told her that she must do much better than she did on her last history test (37 percent).
“She blew my mind, so I told her that if she didn’t get at least 55 percent, I’d give her dog to the boy next door.

“Even so, she didn’t take me seriously, but agreed that she even gets an 80.
“We laughed about it and when the results came back she got 78 percent. We laughed about it and took her to a celebratory lunch with her father.”
But mom’s pride was shattered when she made a discovery.
She said: “I was cleaning her room and I found this box full of old papers and tests from the previous year.
“After looking through a few, I saw an essay that looked familiar. I read it and felt something was wrong so I took it and asked my daughter if I could read hers again. They were almost identical.
“When I confronted her about it, she lied and said it was her first draft.
“Finally, she said at the end that it was Debbie (an older friend of hers) who wrote it for the same assignment a few years ago.
“I was mad and yelled at her before she went to her room. No feeling of remorse or guilty conscience.
“So I took her dog and went next door to give it to our neighbors.
“Since then she’s been crying and her dad has been calling me an ass, but I feel like she needs to understand that every action has consequences.”
Other Reddit users were quick to comment on the situation.
One person said: “Dogs are pets and part of the family. They are not punishment.
“Find another way to punish her. You also punish the dog and he has done nothing wrong.”
While another said: “Yes, there are consequences for your actions. Giving away your dog is NONE of those consequences.”
And a third said: “There has to be a better way of parenting than emotionally destroying and torturing your child.”
