Dear Eye View
I opened my wallet yesterday, and $40 I knew should have been there was missing. I confronted my 6-year-old girl, who denied any knowledge. When I checked her pockets—I found the $40. I found another $10 hidden in her doll house. How should I deal with a young child that steals?
I understand your concern. Generational theft disturbs us all..Based on current parenting trends, take back the $40 , her $10 nest egg, and her dollhouse. We boomer parents have a responsibility to send our children a clear signal on generational theft. That should teach her not to steal. Hope this helps..
