Default How to Record Refund?

I have parents pay for their last 2 weeks up front, in case they leave without giving notice.

Last week I terminated a family's contract and refunded the amount they'd paid for their last week of care. Since they started 18 months ago the last 2 week payment was recorded as income and tax paid on it back then.

Do I record the refund as an expense?

The parent reduces the amount they paid for child care in 2019 by the amount they got from the refund.
