Welp...I just found out my 14 year old daughter is a thief.
Straight busted.

Signs out so many boxes of candy to sell to friends and family to raise money for the school, takes back what's left and 30 candy bars are missing.

She started to lie about it before I stopped her early and warned her and the truth flowed out like a river.

Ugh.

She knows how I feel about thieves, I am very vocal about it.

seriously if she ate them rather than taking the money, try not to be too hard on her

addiction to sugar or chocolate is not a crime

labeling her a thief could be more harmful

best of luck!

Re: Welp...I just found out my 14 year old daughter is a thief.
OP when I was that age I stole some things too.

The mid teens can be very bad that way, they say the conscience doesn't develop until the late teens so please don't give up.

I stole money out of my step-mother's purse, and stole a shirt from a store when I was 15. I grew up though, and now I would not even think of taking something that did not belong to me, and I'm generous to a fault.

So just look at it as a passing phase.

What I've learned from parenting---what you're most vocal about, children will try to hide the most. Look at it from their point of view. Guaranteed trouble.

I found it best to tell them they can come to me with anything. That doesn't mean no consequences. But it means both can build trust with each other and can get through the harder knocks that will come in the future.

This. ^^^


She is still a child.

One of the worst things adults can do to children, is to place upon them reasoning skills of an adult and assume they hold them as well.

They do not.

They are still growing.


Labels are awful things, creating boxes and mind'sets'. Once told something enough, the box begin take hold.

Good luck OP. Many young teens experiment with shoplifting and grow up to be perfectly balanced adults.

What she did is normal for her age. Now she must learn the consequences of her actions. Everything comes at a price. I get the feeling she is a good kid, that was more upsetting to you mostly because its not something you expected. Best of luck, parenting is no easy task.

Yeah, this. Make her responsible to pay the debt. If she doesn't have the money, make a list of chores she has to do to work off her debt. If she doesn't do the chores, no TV, no phone, no computer, etc...

Lots of people love chocolate, but she needs to learn responsibility and self control.

And do watch the negative labels. Girls at that age already struggle with their self esteem and image. Refrain from calling her theif or anything else that makes her think you love her less because she's 'bad'. They are very sensitive about those things at that age.

Instead, focus on teaching her responsibility for her actions with clear cut consequences. Let her learn that doing that type of action again would not be worth the struggle she has to go through to make up for it.

Don't be too hard on her. Give her consequences and tell her how much you love her and trust it will never happen again. If it happens again, then you've got a real problem.

That's the thing though, she doesn't feel guilty.

Not a shred of humility.

I asked her if she thought it was worth it with all the trouble she's going to be in with the school and she answered, "I guess not" and shrugged her shoulders.

Just for that, let the school punish her. Tell them to make her either work it off by doing some kind of work where she can earn the money to pay it back or something.
But if she doesn't feel guilty, I wouldn't bail her out.

THIS

You label her a thief. Why not just say she is a criminal and lock her in the shed for a week?
What a champion mom you are to tell the world about this.

Have her vacuum, dust, clean the bathroom and do some chores.

Then LET IT GO!!!

She's a kid. She will learn from this. BUT.. if you say she is a thief and you cannot trust her anymore, you will shame her and her love for you will start to go VERY VERY sour after this.
Treating her badly will put a hatchet into your relationship with her.
