hey i m not a parent yet...but i think i can help! my frnds used to do they when they were very young. a child would dare to commit this crime is because of his close frnds. always remember ,no child would dare to do it alone afterall! and yeah if u r sure he's doing it,it really could affect when he grows big because it could get worse then this1! neways tell him not to do it n stuff but more imp get his frds n tell their parents too and collectively u can fight it out! a very simple solution..if he tells u he's stolen something or u come to know, justtell him very casually to go and give it back to the would hit hard on him n wouldnt fo again!! hope it helps...

If I had a child that stole things Iwould talk to the child about it. What I would say depends on the age of the child, but the message would be that we never ever take things that do not belong to us. If we want something we have to ask - not steal. Ignoring this i feel would be a very bad solution. getting away with this would be a signal that this is acceptable behaviour - and I do not think that it is.
