Lying and Stealing.. and What You Can Do to Stop It
Sign Up for Our Newsletter. First, let me say that your book Positive Discipline has been immensely helpful. I read it when my son was five he's ten now and I buy a copy for all the new parents I know along with the "Read-Aloud Handbook" by Jim Trelease. So thank for writing the book! My son gets up before me in the morning and gets himself ready for school. We've been having a problem with him taking things that don't belong to him. We've found some of our belongings watches, pocket knives, comic books in his backpack.

When a child or teenager steals, parents are naturally concerned. They worry about what caused their child to steal, and they wonder whether their son or daughter is a "juvenile delinquent., Stealing is taking something that doesn't belong to you.
Have you ever played cops and robbers? It's fun pretending to be a cop chasing and capturing a robber. It can be even more fun to be the robber because you take things and try to get away with them before your buddy, the cop, catches you. You're not really stealing, of course. It's just make-believe.
