    My 11 year old honor student, has attitude all the time, she broke her smart phone and expects a new one when told she would have to earn it, pouted refusing a standard flip phone replacement, then a few minutes. Later I smelled smoke in house and paniced I was about to call 911 when she admitted she lit a price of paper on fire in her room, has no explanation as to why. I’m mad, confused.
