What do you do when your child steals? I say make them give it back to the store or person who they took it from. This needs to be done as soon as possible. If it is from another child call the parent and let them know what happen. It is always important to “attack” the problem and not the child. When dealing with an issue like stealing be reminded that it is normal but not acceptable.
