Today, I went to my cousin's house. I left my bag on the couch as my aunt instructed, only for my cousin to take it and throw it into the swimming pool. My laptop, textbooks and notes were soaked. My exam is in a week, and my aunt won't punish her perfect little angel. FML

I was just about to say this. The damage could easily be thousands in monetary value, then just toss in the opportunity costs of messing severely with OP's academics and possibly holding OP back (laptop holding class notes/major project/etc), the mental strain of losing everything a week before an exam, sentimental value of whatever personal things were on the laptop, and you've got yourself a solid case.

Dose the matter how old the cousin is, if the aunt is refusing to punish them then she is taking full responsibility for her child's actions and should be made to pay the full cost of the damage done both physical and psychological.

#50, even a four year old should know not to grab someone else's things, run outside with them & throw it in a pool. Especially if it's a heavy something like a backpack.

What a little shit. I would be so furious if that happened to me. That kid better be grateful he/she isn't mine. Would regret ever doing that under my roof. Bad parenting on the aunt for not doing anything about it

Your cousin only acts that way because your aunt allows it.
