Her teacher tells me she fixates on objects at school and she wants to work on this also. Her mother (on and off of drugs) did shoplift at times, but the child hasn't lived with her for two years. I really worry about how to stop her.
I would suggest role playing situations at home and with a school counselor where she gets a chance to reveal her thoughts and feelings around your concerns. Use dolls, toys, and other playthings in these pleasant dramatizations. Ask her to be the teacher, a friend, you, herself at school. Ask a children's librarian to suggest age-appropriate books that would provide examples of these problem situations and how kids resolve them. All the while you are doing these things, pay close attention to offering her encouraging words about her efforts at school and at home. Encouraging words and demonstrations of affection will make her feel secure and appreciated. Let me know of her progress.
