Introduction: My Child,repparttar Thief

One ofrepparttar 143218 more common problems that we as parents encounter, but that nobody likes to talk about, is what to do when your child steals. There are a number of different reasons a child steals and a number of different ways to handlerepparttar 143219 problem.

Young children do not steal. Children belowrepparttar 143220 age of four or five do not have a concept of ownership. They do not understand that it is wrong to take things that belong to others.

Byrepparttar 143221 time a child enters elementary school, he should know that stealing is wrong. Often children at this age take things because they lack self-control.

A preteen or teen may steal forrepparttar 143222 thrill of it or because that is what friends are doing. He may be trying to gain a feeling of control over his life or to fill an emotional void.

Whateverrepparttar 143223 reason a child is stealing,repparttar 143224 parents need to approachrepparttar 143225 problem with wisdom. Ifrepparttar 143226 parents just react according to their natural inclination, their response will almost certainly be wrong and destructive.

Why a Child Steals

1-Child Can't Control Himself

Younger children have difficulty with self-control. A child may take something although he knows that stealing is wrong simply because he can't help himself. You have to give your childrepparttar 143227 ability to get what he wants in an honest way. Also, you must try to minimizerepparttar 143228 temptation.

2-Child's Basic Needs are Not Being Met

Children are completely dependent on their parents for all of their needs. A child who feels that his needs are not being met will eventually takerepparttar 143229 matter into his own hands. The easiest way for a child to do this is to take what he needs.

What a person needs is subjective. Even though a parent may not feel that a child should have something, it might be a real need forrepparttar 143230 child. For example, ifrepparttar 143231 child's school friends have pocket money, then your child could have a need for pocket money. He will feel a lack if he doesn't have it, even if you provide him with everything that he wants. This type of child may be tempted to steal money just so he has money like everybody else.

3-Child Needs More Attention

Probablyrepparttar 143232 most common reason that children steal is that they feel an emotional lack in their lives. A child who does not have his emotional needs met, feels empty inside. He may take things in an attempt to fillrepparttar 143233 void. Often children who steal are lonely or having trouble in school or with friends. They lackrepparttar 143234 tools orrepparttar 143235 opportunity to express their feelings.

Many children do not getrepparttar 143236 attention they need. Such a child may feel unloved or thatrepparttar 143237 parents are not interested in him. This may or may not be true. As I explain in How to Improve Your Child's Behavior, how your child perceives your attention is more important thanrepparttar 143238 amount of attention that you give. These children may translate their emotional needs into material desires. Stealing is their way for these children to express their discontent and to seek gratification.

4-Child Needs to Have Control Over His Life

Children are acutely aware of their vulnerability. They lack control over their lives. Some children have difficulty with this. Ifrepparttar 143239 child has trouble feeling dependant, he may steal to gain a sense of control or to rebel.

5-Peer Pressure

Older children are pulled after what their friends do. Ifrepparttar 143240 child is with a group of children that feel stealing is exciting,repparttar 143241 child may steal to be part ofrepparttar 143242 group. Sometimes, a child may steal to show bravery to friends. If your child has fallen into a group of bad friends there are some very concrete things you can do to addressrepparttar 143243 problem.
