    For me, it would depend on the child. My eldest is very responsible and she always looks after things. She is in year 2 at school and has had the same school hat since she started school (so 2.5 years just about) and she has never lost a jacket or jumper. So for her I would definitely give her the money.

    I'm like @Sonja, I'm a big softie. I'd replace it. However, I too don't have the money to replace it straight away so that changes things.

    I would replace it.

    It was a birthday present, it was unfortunate that it got lost and sometimes we all leave things behind whilst not thinking, I'm sure she was excited about it and she probably doesn't get to buy things from that shop often?

    I am all for life lessons but I'm also a big softy and in this instance I would replace it.

    However I understand that you can't afford to at the moment so I would maybe take her back to the shop when she gets get pocket money?

    I've decide to replace it, but I told her it won't be until two pay days ($20 next time, then $10 the time after) as we don't have lots of money.
    She wants something there which is $20 anyway so when I get paid again I'll take her. Unless some miracle happens and we find the gift card.
    She's learnt her lesson now as she said to me "next time if I have a gift card I'll give it to you to hold"
