This is an old story, but it's the first time it's happened in my family, so I'm looking for some advice.


My 7-year-old son was allowed to help with collecting money at a sign-in table at an event this weekend.

I'd take the $50 (and return it)

Where I come from that's called stealing.

Don't beat yourself up over it, every kid has to learn right from wrong. Just make sure it's a teachable moment and that he understands why it was wrong.
