    Yup, bring it to their attention right away and offer to help. I always told me kids that I don't have a problem with accidents as long as they are willing to help deal with the consequences and don't lie or avoid.

    Now if something is done deliberately or repeatedly... well, that's another story :)

    Yes, with that large of a hole, even with the netting as Tiny described, it may take two coats of putty/mud. The mud will have to dry and often times shrinks while drying, then a finish coat will need to be applied and sanded with sandpaper, then you can paint it.

    Would the drywall have to be replaced, or could you just fill it in?

    If the whole is smaller than 2-3" in diameter it is not that hard to fix, I have fixed 5-6" holes, they are harder and take more time, the larger the hole the more the mud shrinks and the more coats of mud need to be applied. They have to dry overnight between coats.

    Whew ... I just told my dad about it and showed him the spot. I was really surprised because he laughed. But he's going to show me how to fix it. That's a load off!

    I learned the hard way that if I'd just grab 'em and tell 'em what I did, no dancing, no excuses and especially no fibbing, it was generally better. If I'd stand there and hang my head, twist my toe in the carpet and say, "Mea Culpa", I'd get forgiven a lot quicker. Might still be in trouble but I hadn't heaped a bunch of other stuff on top of the original mistake. Took me til my 20's or so though.....
