Oh, great. Our exchange student is freaking out.
Advertisements [?]
We have this exchange student from Germany who has been at our house about two weeks now, and she's been expecting a package of Christmas presents from her mother. The package finally came today, but the postmaster delivered it to our front door instead of the mailbox. When I came out to get it, it had been ripped open by an animal or my dogs (we live by the woods so it could have been either). I got pretty much everything back together, but most of the candy was gone. Every little present I had taped and wrapped back up, but I didn't want to lie to her about it. When my mother got home, we tried to explain what happen and she got really really upset. She's like crying hysterically and wailing about how much it cost her mom to send the package, etc. I think she hates being at our house and hates our dogs. I don't know what to do. I understand how upset she is, but there is nothing we could have done to prevent it. She is mad and blaming us now, and it's unfair of her to do it. I literally walked around the yard for 45 minutes today to find ANYTHING remotely resembling something that was a gift.

Everything was fine up until NOW. We got along fine, there was no problems. Now something happens and she blows up.

I don't know what to do.
