My 8 year old daughter is stealing and I don’t know what to do :( 2 years ago she brought home a toy from school she claimed she had won.
It seemed suspicious to me, so I had asked her teacher about it and found out she had taken it from another student. I brought her to class and made her apologize to the student and to the teacher. Over the last couple years, she has taken multiple small items from me and other members in the family. When she is caught, she just says she doesn’t know how she got it. I just received a call from her school and she was caught with an epi pen (not sure if that’s spelled correctly) that was “lost” from the teacher’s desk. Of course she says she doesn’t know how it ended up in her book bag. I can’t understand why she would even take this as she knows what it is for and she has no use for it. I try to teach my children good morals and I really want to nip this in the bud now, but I’m not sure how. It seems like taking away her tv and favorite toys, etc, is not working. Why is she doing this and what can I do to stop it??
