4 1/2 and a repeat offender????
Sun, 12-23-2007 - 12:32pm

My daughter is 4 1/2 yrs. old and repeatedly takes things from her daycare. Stealing is a harsh word but that what it is. This has happend 10 times plus in the past 9 months what should I do? I am so frustrated and a little embarrassed, constantly having to bring back her stolen goods and having her appologize. Why is she doing this she has so many toys and such at home? And what should I do? I try to be the best mom possible, I don't ignore her ,

has anything recently happend that has caused her to start doing this?? what are you going doing besides taking her back to give the items back to the place that she took them from. you might want to take her to the police station and see if they can talk to her...i know that may sound a little extreme for a 4 year old but maybe they could help her. not for them to scare her but talk to her.

i hope you have a wonderful christmas

Mother of Repeat Offender,

Your daughter is old enough to know right from wrong.
