I'm new to this board, don't know what was discussed.
At witz end to know why or what to do with a 13 yr. old stealing. She has had this problem for several years and its just getting worse.
She started out about first grade with taking items from classmates desks like pencils and just little things. It wasn't long then it was taking items from their lunch bags althou she had hot lunches every day. It was never things that she needed, if it was one could begin to understand.\ This month she was caught after she took her mothers ATM card and took out money as she watched her mother and knew her pin number. It amounted to several hundred dollars befor they caught it.
Her father called the police and she tried to lie out of it, the policeman said "she can lie really well".
Father works long hours to make a living and mother works also. I believe she is lacking in the amount of attention that she needs. Its a long story but any ideas?
